Oh wow  ...  the Donora slugger.    He used to "kill" my Buccos at Sportman's Park.   Feet together  ...  hands high ....  6

EDIT:   I know the aforementioned from my childhood.   So, I looked up "The Man" on baseball reference and was surprised to find out that Griffey, SR is from Donora as well.    Donora is next famous for the "smog" that settled over the town in the late 40's when lots of folks died including Musial's father.

This picture is at noon during the "smog"  ....

Stan Musial and Ted Williams WERE baseball when I was a kid.

That's how you hold a bat.
