Yankee shortstop Phil Rizzuto goes flying over Jackie Robinson to turn a double play.

Club President Larry MacPhail congratulates fireman Joe Page (center) who put the finishing touches on the Yankees 5-2 win. Joe DiMaggio looks on as MacPhail announced his immediate retirement after the game.

 

Ralph Branca comes in for relief in Game 7 action. Brooklyn coach Clyde Sukeforth made the pitching changes for the Dodgers as baseball rules prohibited manager Bert Shotton on the field. Shotton preferred to manage in a suit instead of a baseball uniform. Dodger president Branch Rickey (right) consoles manager Bert Shotton after the Series loss. Speculation now runs wild in Flatbush if Shotton will return or suspended Leo Durocher will take the reigns of the Flock for the 1948 campaign.
