A ‘Splendid’ find?

You never quite know what you’re going to find when you start clearing off your desk. In my case, I’ve recently moved from a
corner surrounded by file cabinets that house old pictures. Somehow this old picture slid into a pile of my old clips, and it resurfaced earlier this month. The problem is, we’re not sure it ever ran. Here’s what I know. Obviously, it’s Ted Williams, perhaps the greatest hitter to ever play the game. And the picture was shot in September of 1960, the “Splendid Splinter’s” final year as a Major Leaguer. What I don’t know is who is in the photo. It was taken by a Peterborough photographer, but we’re imagining some of the kids in the picture must have had local ties. If you recognize someone, reach me at Now I’m off to clutter up my new desk.
