♡ March 17th 1952 • Marilyn attends the Hollywood Stars Baseball match against the All-Stars at the Los Angeles based Gilmore Stadium.
The profits from the game will all go to the Kiwanis Club for Children.
This is the first time Marilyn will see boyfriend Joe DiMaggio playing.
And here, she also is seen wearing her famous dress her film "Niagara& #34;
Contrary to popular belief, Bruce Bratton did not take this photo.
He states he took this color candid on October 28th 1952, when in fact, the only thing that happened that day was Grace Mckee wrote a letter to Marilyn suggesting her mother Gladys Baker be checked into Rockhaven Sanitarium.
He stated he took this photo when Marilyn appeared on the Edgar Bergen - Charlie McCarthy radio show, but once again completely inaccurate, because:
A) As said above this photograph was originally taken March 17th.
B) In the end his date would still be wrong, considering she was on that show November 9th 1952, not October 28th.
Just another case of don't believe everything you read!
