Emmett Ashford Sequence photograph, 1966 June 03
A series of three black-and-white photographs of Ashford Emmett umpiring. The caption above the image (not shown here) reads, "6/3/1966-New York: Making his mark in the American League this season is effervescent Emmett Ashford. His distinctive style has added to the fun of the games he's umpired. Ashford, a rookie, has the poise and assurance of the pro. His moves and calls are animated and, to the dismay of some and delight of most, he's better to watch sometimes than the game."
