Rookie Gary Gentry, no. 39, took a moment to hang with some veterans during an Old-Timers Day game in 1969. Gentry had been born 18 years after Stan Coveleski (second from left; in Indians uniform) had retired from MLB. Covelski, who had played off and on from 1912 to 1928, was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame during the 1969 season.
