Rick Miller with Carlton Fisk over his left shoulder.
Dwight Evans. The second best arm I ever saw in Right Field... the best? Roberto Clemente....
Looks like Yaz just chopped Rick Miller's head off....
Rick Burleson. Notice that there are hardly any people in the stands. The paid attendance was a mere 6,331, but I doubt there were that many there.

To show you how CHEAP Charlie Finley was, he would not turn the scoreboards on till the game started. 8/77
Fred Lynn heading to the outfield. Notice the scoreboard on the middle deck to the left. It is not on. Due to how cheap Charlie Finley was. Number 35 is the late Johnny Pesky.
