Jesus, Matty and Felipe Alou, with the San Francisco Giants in the early 1960s.

The Alou brothers, Jesus, Matty and Felipe, with the San Francisco Giants in the early 1960s. They were the first brothers to play in the same outfield in the same game.

Matty Alou was the first baseball card that I owned. Opened the pack, purchased with the income from soda bottles collected in a Florida field, and the first guy I saw was Matty Alou. Weird, the shit we remember, but that random memory always stuck with me and it made me a fan of the Alou brothers.
