    That picture is incredible. The absolute wonder of all the kids around him. Had they never seen a typewriter before? And the guy ready to light up a sig.

    Gammons looks like a young Stuttering John.

    The Globe and Philly Daily News of that era assembled a couple of the best sports staffs ever.

    I was fortunate enough to be in college and just starting out in the business in the mid-70s and early 80s, and reading The Globe sports section was simply an absolute joy.

    Would be interesting to know if any of the 3 boys around him became writers.

    Picture looks like something Babe Ruth would have been in, with kids hanging all over and around him.

    Hope those kids didn't grow up to be analytics fanatics who now consider Ryan to be a grumpy old man.
