Both have their hands in their jacket pockets and Buford has a crutch under his left arm.

Frank RobinsonFrom Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frank_Robinson (5/30/2007) Frank Robinson (born August 31, 1935 in Beaumont, Texas), is a Hall of Fame former Major League Baseball player. He was an outfielder, most notably with the Cincinnati Reds and the Baltimore Orioles. During a 21-season career, he became the first player to win League MVP honors in both the National and American Leagues, won the Triple crown, was a member of two teams that won the World Series (the 1966 and 1970 Baltimore Orioles), and amassed the fourth-most career home runs at the time of his retirement (he is currently sixth).During the last two years of his playing career, he served as the first permanent African-American manager in Major League history, managing the Cleveland Indians to a 186-189 record. He went on to manage the San Francisco Giants, the Baltimore Orioles, the Montreal Expos and the Washington Nationals. Don BufordFrom Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (6/8/2007) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Don_BufordDonald Alvin Buford (born February 2, 1937 in Linden, Texas) is a former Major League Baseball player. An infielder/outfielder, the switch-hitting Buford played for the Chicago White Sox (1963-1967) and Baltimore Orioles (1968-1972).Buford played baseball at the University of Southern California under legendary coach Rod Dedeaux. In 1958 he played on the Trojans' College World Series champions. He was also a running back on the USC football team. His son Damon Buford also played for the USC Trojans. In 2001 Buford was inducted into the USC Athletic Hall of Fame.He broke into the majors as an infielder who played both second base and third base, becoming the White Soxミ regular at the former position in 1965 (after sharing the position with Al Weis in 1964) and the latter in 1966. In the latter year, he stole a career-high 51 bases (one behind the American League leader, Bert Campaneris) and led the AL in sacrifice hits with 17, while establishing himself as one of the leagueミs top lead-off hitters.After the 1967 season the White Sox traded Buford to Baltimore in the same dealt that sent Luis Aparicio back to the White Sox, for whom he had starred from 1956 to 1962 (and was one of the ChiSoxミ most popular players). In 1968 Buford batted .282 with 15 home runs in a lineup that also featured the likes of Frank Robinson, Brooks Robinson, Boog Powell and Davey Johnson. ...In 2006 Buford was the manager of the Daytona Cubs of the Florida State League; he was replaced by Jody Davis prior to the start of the 2007 season. Previously, he had served on Frank Robinson's coaching staff with the Orioles, San Francisco Giants and Washington Nationals.
