It’s not every day that a casual baseball game causes a player to levitate — just one day back in the 1970s.

We’re not sure of exactly what happened here on the field, but RFH yearbook photographer George Day caught this home run of a shot — mid-air.

We’re bringing this scary Santa gem back from the 2018 archives. Originally posted on Dec. 12, 2018, this is the stuff priceless scary Santa pics are made of … This one was from 2010. We wish these older now twins a very happy holiday and thanks for the bowl full of jello belly laugh!

Sometimes you just win a trifecta when asking for a winning photo of children’s miserable experiences on the lap of Ol’ Saint Nick during the holidays.
