Photo of the Day: JFK with Ted Williams, Eddie Pellagrini and Hank Greenberg

50 years ago today, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. This photo was taken at a Tigers-Red Sox game in 1946, the same year a 29-year-old Kennedy was first elected to Congress.

As president, JFK threw out four ceremonial first pitches -- including one before the 1962 All-Star Game. Listen to Jim Kaat, Bobby Richardson and other former players reflect on his legacy and that fateful day in 1963 right here.
