PICTURE OF THE DAY 2

THROW BACK...In honor of the old days when the newly arrived Brooklyn Dodgers played in the L.A. Coliseum, the Red Sox and Dodgers played an exhibition game there last week.

Note the short left field line (210 feet) and the 60 foot screen that serves to lengthen the field. Also of note is the fact that the odd configuration makes a left fielder a moot point, and allows the teams to use five infielders.
