"Bobby Shantz Night"
Summer 1965

During the baseball season of 1965, WFIL-TV, Channel 6 sent some of their TV personalities to a home Philadelphia Phillies game at Connie Mack Stadium. One of the television legends that the TV station sent was Sally Starr. Seen in this 1965 photo is Sally with former Phillies baseball player, Bobby Shantz.

Sally Starr told us that the picture was taken during the summer of 1965. It's was "Bobby Shantz Night" at the Phillies to honor a player who retired the year before. He was from the area and who played on both the Phils and the Philadelphia A's.
