Incredible 1959 photograph of Dick Brown, Almendares catcher and his friend George Triana who was a rebel soldier from Cuba as they exchange their "tools of the trade" for this rare photograph in which the rebel soldier holds the baseball mitt and the ballplayer gets his hand on a machine gun that led to the overthrow of the Cuban government! A touching image that we have never seen before, issued by the Associated Press.
