Mickey Cochrane, catcher for the Philadelphia Athletics, dives to tag out Pinky Whitney of the Philadelphia Phillies in preseason City Series game between Philadelphia's two Major League clubs on April 1, 1933 at Shibe Park. Image includes umpire John Quinn.

Excerpt from the Philadelphia Inquirer, April 2, 1933 describing the game: "Bronzed and fit after a month of Florida sunshine, the Athletics and Phillies put major league baseball on view in Philadelphia yesterday for the first time this year when the American Leaguers downed their National circuit foeman, 6 to 3, to open the series for the city championship. ... Threatening weather cut the crowd to 2500."

Excerpt from the Philadelphia Inquirer, April 2, 1933 describing the play: "A brilliant play by [Pinky] Higgins blanked the Phillies in the fourth. After [Gus] Dugas popped to [Eric] McNair, [Bob] Johnson muffed Whitney's drive after a hard sprint to the scoreboard. Pinkey [sic] took third on the error. It was a spectacular play, Higgins shoveled up Lee's teaser and pinched Whitney at the plate."
