Charles "Teenie" Harris (1908–1998) was an African–American photographer from Pittsburgh, well known for his photographs of residents and prominent visitors to the city. Baseball was a common theme in Harris’ work; he was one of the original founders of an African American team based in the Hill District. In this image of players from the Los Angeles Dodgers, Harris depicts a group of teammates as friends, posing together after a game. Camaraderie, even in the face of racial adversity, was an aspect of the game Harris was partial to highlighting, showing the community aspects of the game he loved.
