The Cubs had no game on Monday, August 11. They were out on their second of two West Coast trips. Over the weekend they dropped two of three to the Dodgers and were on their way to San Diego. Their lead over the Mets was still 7 ½ games.
The four players from this week were Fergie Jenkins, Al Spangler, Jim Hickman, and Ron Santo.
The angle of the picture makes Fergie seem even taller than the 6'5" he actually was.
Spangler doesn't look to excited to be having his picture taken. At this point in his career he should have been ecstatic that he was still in the major leagues.
Time for some color in the newpaper...
