The A’s hanging out in the dugout before Game 1 of the 1914 World Series at Shibe Park. To do this photo justice, however, you gotta see the full sized pic. It appears to have been touched up a bit, but the clarity of the players and fans is astonishing. You can almost hear their conversations. Hard to believe this was taken 97 years ago. The A’s would lose the game 7-1, and lose the Series in 4 games to the Boston Braves. Mack would sell off his stars after this Series, and the team would tank quickly and spectacularly, going 43-109 in 1915.
