Title: That's my man!

One of a series of sequential views of Beverly Snider, wife of Brooklyn Dodgers center fielder Duke Snider, watching World Series game with other fans at Ebbets Field; see also DODG 1153 - 1156. All images 9 x 6 in. except for 1156 (10 x 8 in.), which shows Beverly Snider standing and is a duplicate with more extensive background of 1155. Caption on versos of 1153 and 1155: "That's My Man!: This is how the wife of a ballplayer looks when she sees her husband blast a homer in a World Series. The Duchess of Snider, shown here in four stages of baseball wife emotion, watches her Duke clout one of Allie Reynolds' curve balls over scoreboard in sixth inning of yesterday's 4-2 World Series opener at Ebbets Field. Mrs. Beverly Snider, in fur piece, sits hopefully and prayerfully as Duke takes strike [1153]. Then Duke swings, connects and her face lights up [1152]. Now the ball is on its way toward the right-centerfield wall . . . and is she talking to it [1154]? Now the ball has disappeared, her Duke is trotting home and she's so happy she's not even applauding [1155 and 1156]. 34,860 other fans, including Mrs. Andy Pafko seated besider her, were clapping, though."
