Crosley Field, Cincinnati, Ohio, July 20, 1950 – Dodgers’ Jim Russell playing in the shadows of a iconic scoreboard during a Thursday doubleheader

 

Here is a good look at the Crosley Field scoreboard positioned in left field, to its left is Dodgers left fielder Jim Russell. Based on the scoreboard it’s the bottom of the fourth inning with Brooklyn ace Don Newcombe on the mound pitching to the Reds catcher Johnny Parmesa with two outs. Parmesa would fly out to Russell to end the inning.

But the Reds would win the first game of a Thursday doubleheader 3-1 with the help of a Ted Kluszewski sixth inning home run and a complete game effort from starting pitcher Ken Raffensberger.

The game was played in one hour and 43 minutes.

The Reds would win the nightcap as well by a 6-2 score, breaking a 2-2 tie in the seventh inning with four runs, highlighted by a Joe Adcock two-run single
