Here is the second photo of Dave Pope leaping for Dusty Rhodes' homerun in game one of the 1954 World Series at the Polo Grounds

As promised in our previous post (Jan. 6), this is another picture of Dave Pope's desperate leap in the 10th inning of game one of the 1954 World Series. It was taken within a couple of seconds of the other shot. You can see that the ball hit by pinch hitter Dusty Rhodes of the New York Giants has bounced out of the hands of a fan in the right field stands.

The International News Photo's camera man was Vincent Lopez. Considering the angle he must have shot from, it is a remarkable picture.
