The Famous Photo Of Juan Marichal Beating Johnny Roseboro With His Bat, In Color

How many times have you seen the AP photo of an enraged Juan Marichal hammering Dodgers catcher Johnny Roseboro with his bat. Unfortunately, the AP still shot mostly in black-and-white in 1965. So Reddit user "BradyIsAnElitePunter" took a whack at colorizing the picture in Photoshop. (Click to see the full photo.)

Is it perfect? No, but it's great to look at an old snapshot in a new way, and makes you think twice about those old-school baseball memories that didn't actually happen in monochrome.
