1976 Dodger Stadium

Here is a great unique image of Dick Allen in 1976. This was taken at Dodger Stadium. I first found this image at Steve Dewing's outstanding Baseball Photography web page. You can purchase a copy from him if you want.

A quick look at Retrosheet tells me that this photo was most likely taken on July 18th. As it was the only day game the Phils played at LA all season. Allen hit a 2nd inning HR off Tommy John.

The Phillies won 101 games in 1976 and Dick Allen made his one and only trip to the baseball post-season.

Nice pic--and Dick was traded by the Dodgers to the Chisox at the end of the '71 season for a guy named Tommy John! I'll bet he had a chuckle to himself rounding the bases.
