The caption on the back reads: Sizing it up -Charley Beamon (right), Baltimore Oriole hurler who will pitch for the Major-Minor All-Stars against Oakland California Towel in the March of Dimes game Sunday, shows the grip to his fastball to Lil Arnich, director of the annual contest. In addtion to the caption: Beamon is in a California Towel uniform. Lil is wearing a suit and tie and not quite looking at Beamon but rather at something past Beamon's left. Note: There is a quarter at Beamon's finger tips on the baseball.
