This is the quintessential timeless shot of The Boys of Summer, made famous by Roger Kahn's book of the same name. Shot exclusively for SPORT magazine by photographer George Heyer, this authentic image, hand printed from the original slide, captures the camaraderie of the Brooklyn Dodgers at the Ebbets Field batting cage early in the 1955 season.
