Baseball 1966 gets under way and we salute it with our annual baseball issue, complete with 15 pages of photographs in full color and an analysis of each of the 20 major league clubs. William Leggett, who likes the Phils, writes at length about that lively and provocative team, and Jack Mann takes a long look at a frequently maligned man. Walter O'Malley, the Los Angeles Dodger. Plus a day-by-day report of the Masters Tournament, and all regular features and news.
