Huge 1953 photograph of a bench clearing dust-up between the rival New York Giants and the Brooklyn Dodgers at Ebbets Field. Easily recognizable in the photo is the iconic number 42 of Jackie Robinson as he takes charge and is the one addressing the umpire. It appears thee fight started when Carl Furillo was dusted off the plate by Sal Maglie and threw his bat at the pitcher in anger! Issued by the New York Daily News and with a full paper caption on the back that notes the photographer as Charles Hoff!
