Veeck Calling, 1943

From the Chicago Tribune archives comes this lovely staged photo of our very own Sport Shirt Bill.

William Veeck Jr., president of the Milwaukee Brewers and former Chicago Cubs official, finds the telephone useful in helping dispose of the association's war time problems in 1943. (Chicago Tribune)
Mugging for the cameras a bit, our Bill. He knew promotions better than anyone, and he also knew that he was part of the product.
