Pensacola Dons Player ” Youngdahl ” …

Youngdahl 1_RTP_1_15_13

This Dons player’s name was ” Youngdahl “.  I do not know anything about what what position he played or any of his stats.  The thing that is funny to me is the guy way in the back behind the fence … I do not know what he is doing or if he even knew that he was in the photograph, but I guess people have always been people in the background trying to make fools of themselves.  Here is the same photo below that was worked on with the Lucis Art Filter …

The filter really accentuates the details in a b&w photo … the guy in the background and the ads on the back wall, along with the dirt in the outfield, all have a distinct and different look from just a straight b&w scan / print.  Thanks for looking and commenting … I have been busy with other things and have not spent much time on this blog lately.  I have found a stack of negatives that I found years ago, but put somewhere so that I would not lose them and ended up miss-placing  them until a week ago.  I have not scanned any of the negative s and I plan to do so in the next few weeks, please check back.  Thanks again for looking … Frank

    • Steve … Thanks for the comment. I know nothing about any of the players that I have posted here on this blog. I appreciate you and anyone else that takes the time to look and post any information about these players that you come across. I have several years ( 1957-59 ) worth of Dons players negatives, but most are in poor shape and have just not bothered to work on them. Someday when I run out of other negatives, I will probably start on them and post some here. Most of the players stayed in this league and never made it to the majors. I have posted some on Bo Belinsky, mainly because my father had some type of personal contact with him. Scott Brown had a photo of Cal Ripken Sr that my father had made and I posted it. Other than those two and a handful more, most I have not posted. Thanks for looking and please check back … Frank

    • Thanks for the link … I have been to that site before, but it has been a while. I have individual photos of all of the the players on the team for the three years that the Dons were around. I have only posted a handful of the players individually, so I have many more to post in the future. Thanks for looking and please check back … Frank
