Sandy Koufax delivers a pitch to Charlie Neal of the Reds. John Roseboro is the catcher. Chris Pelekoudas is the umpire. 1st game of doubleheader on July 7, 1963. Best guess is that this photo is from Neal’s 5th inning at bat, a strikeout. In Neal’s first at bat in the second, he did not take a pitch. Also the mound appears to have been walked on a bit.
