Lost Morrison Photographs Show Jim Playing Baseball

Lost photographs of rock legend JIM MORRISON playing baseball with a family he befriended, are being offered to subscribers of the Doors Collectors Magazine as free gifts.

One fan, calling herself LANA, made editors of the internet fanzine aware of the snapshots she found while clearing through family keepsakes.

She informed DCM writers that she met Morrison at Los Angeles club the Whisky-A-Go-Go in 1969 and took him home to meet her parents.

The eight photographs feature the Doors singer "hanging" with the family and playing baseball with Lana's siblings.

DCM editors are giving away a shot from the set with every purchase of merchandise bought from them while stocks last.

Fanzine writer KERRY HUMPHREYS says, "When I share my Doors/Morrison collection with friends, the Lana photos absolutely get the single biggest reaction of any item I own!

"They show a side of Jim that not many people have ever seen or even know about."
