Frank Hardy Made My Photographs Two

Pensacola Dons with Bo Belinsky …

Pitching Group _ RTP _ 19 June 14 SFW

This is a group photo of the pitching staff of the Pensacola Dons from 1959.  I am not 100% on the year, but I am pretty sure that was the year.  Belinsky in the the back row on the far right side.  I do not have a clue who any of the other pitchers are at this point … I will have to do some checking and see if I can find some names.  I ran across a folder that I have scanned, but I have not cleaned any of the photos up and gotten ready to post.  There might be 40 or so negatives that I have scanned in this folder.  Some negatives are of a group of male body builders in their bathing suites and some girls giving them their awards.  I have posted a photo of a beauty queen receiving a trophy from a ball player, but I have not done anything with the guys.  I guess management figured if they did something for the men in the stands that they had better do something for the women so that they would not have a riot on their hands.  I will work them up in the next few weeks and post them.  Maybe the Blue Wahoos could learn a thing or two from the Dons, however the way that they pack that new stadium every game, they are certainly doing something right because it sure ain’t the way that they are playing!!  Thanks for looking and please check back … Frank

One more thing, here is a link to Bo Belinsky’s Wikipedia page.  He was really an interesting guy, so just google him and read about him ….

  1. Frank Was wondering if any of your pictures are available for purchase. I especially like anything baseball and your current one is very nice. Thank you.

    • Steve … Yes, everything is for sale. I do not sell them myself. You go through a site ( ) and order through them. I do not have any baseball photos up on this site, so I would have to post the one or ones that you would be interested in purchasing. There is a link on the ride side that takes you to the site … I think it says something like ” To Purchase Prints “. Click on it and my Zenfolio site opens, find the folder that says something like ” Dad’s Blog Photos “, click on it and see the images that I have put up. Click on a photo and another menu pops up with prices. You can pull this images off the site and print them if you would like, it does not bother me and the resolution is high enough that you can get a good 4×5 or 5×7 print. If you have any more questions or comments, please ask … Frank
