Al Gionfriddo Signed Photo Dodgers 8×10 – COAGo Back
Al Gionfriddo was acquired by the Brooklyn Dodgers from the Pirates midway through the 1947 season, and is most famous for his heroic catch of a drive off the bat of the New York Yankees’ Joe DiMaggio in Game 6 of the 1947 World Series. The Dodgers led the Yankees 8–5 going into the bottom of the 6th inning when Gionfriddo was brought in as a defensive replacement. Snuffy Stirnweiss and Yogi Berra were on base when DiMaggio drove the ball to the 415 marker. Gionfriddo raced across the field and caught the ball several steps before crashing into the bullpen gate. In one of the most famous images in baseball history, the taciturn DiMaggio shook his head and kicked at the dirt in frustration.
Presented is an 8×10 black and white photo of a World Series catch against the Yankees autographed by Al Gionfriddo. He signed the photo in blue felt tip (“9-10”).
