Friday Photo History: Judge Damon J. Keith & The Boys of Summer
To honor this year's Ford Freedom Award Scholar, the Honorable Judge Damon J. Keith, as well as salute spring and the national pastime of baseball, here are two photographs that accomplish both. Our first photo features Jackie Robinson and Judge Damon Keith, and is from the years 1960 - 1965. The second photo features, from left to right, Willie Horton, Ernie Harwell, Judge Damon Keith, and Mike Ilitch, and is from the years 2000 - 2005.
