1967 Scrapbook - Cookie Rojas

Another installment of a new series called "1967 Scrapbook". A few months ago, I found a baseball scrapbook I had made in 1967, containing photos that I clipped from the Philadelphia sports pages that summer. Most of the photos are from the previous night's Phillies game.

June 30th - Cookie pitched the 9th, adding a 9th position to his resume:
