Original c. 1910 photograph of the overflow crowd at the Polo Grounds for a big game swarming onto the field after the final out was recorded. While not identified as a specific game, this is a scene eerily reminiscent of the famed "Merkle Boner" which took place at about the same time and place. More research is needed but this could be quite a find with some research and since this came from the Baseball Magazine archives, there is a good chance this image was used for publication in one of their issues!
