This snapshot of Peanuts Lowrey would date from the early 1950s, as he played for the Cardinals from 1950 to 1954. One of the reasons I like it is for the signs on the outfield wall, something you just don’t see very much anymore. (And when you do, like currently at Dodger Stadium, it isn’t, of course, at all the same.)
Lowrey was born in the Los Angeles area and apparently worked as a child actor for a time. He also set a record with seven consecutive pinch hits while playing for the Cardinals in 1952.
