    After 50 Years, Justice for Mr. Mancuso.

    The man who shot the "shot heard round the world" finally gets credit for his work. A little late, but better than never.

    Neat story, Stephen. I was 16 at game time and a big baseball fan. Remember the photo well, but never heard the story.

    Is our "Guy" the other son?

    Well I could be born in 1956. LOL

    What a great story though and what a shame he went all that time without the credit but as they say what goes around comes around and I hope his son's remember him well. Certainly left a legacy behind
    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

    Nice story with a happy ending -- the guy was worried about leaving a legacy and does just days before his death.

    Thanks for post the link.
