Frank Hardy Made My Photographs Two

Ballpark Beauty Contest …

with 2 comments

This is something that the Blue Wahoos might to consider … A Beauty Contest … Miss Blue Wahoo.  Sort of has a nice ring to it.  My father made this photo down at the old Admiral Mason Ball Park when the Pensacola Dons were playing.  They must have had a beauty contest and this pretty young lady was the winner.  You can see all of the other contestants in the background.  I also ran across a men’s body building contest, but it is in bad shape and have not wanted to bother taking the time to clean it up.  I had posted this photo up on my old blog and someone told me who the radio announcer is, but I cannot find his name anywhere.  I am sure someone out there knows … also, if anyone recognizes the ball player or young lady, please let us know.  I would guess that this was around 1957 or 58.  Thanks for looking …

UPDATE:  The man with the microphone is Don Griffith.  Someone had emailed me that information a while back when I had the other blog and I could not find where I had put his name.  Back on Saturday, April 7, 2012, Earl Bowden had written an article in the Pensacola News Journal on the ” Opinion Page ” about the history of Pensacola Baseball through the years.  He mentioned the ” melodius WCOA broadcaster Don Meredith ” in his article and when I read that I remembered the announcer’s name.  If you can find the article ( I do not know if you can go on-line and access past articles from the PNJ … if you cannot, maybe contact them and ask how you can locate the article ) it is very interesting and entertaining … as are all the articles that Mr. Bowden writes for the Pensacola News Journal.  The only thing that I do not like is that Mr. Bowden is limited to only one column – they should give him several, since everything he writes is so interesting!  As usual, all comments are appreciated …

    • I do not know either, but the Dons would sponsor both lady’s and men’s beauty contests for the fans. I have one of the men’s body building contestants, but it is in very bad shape and it will take a long time to work it up. So I have not bothered with posting the image … it is funny though. Thanks for taking the time to comment … Frank
