Since the AP baseball photo feed is guaranteed to be barren for the next month or so, I thought it might be fun to kick off some theme weeks for our fabled Create-a-Caption contests. This week, it's baseball players and animals.
In our year's first entry, we have the late Catfish Hunter accepting a 5,500-pound elephant as a gift upon his retirement from the Yankees in 1979. According to the AP, he also received "a truck, a car, a television (and) two shotguns" that day. The AP does not identify the little boy.
So have at it, amateur Internet copy editors of the world. How should this caption read?
Follow the jump to find winners from our pre-holiday C-a-C, which was also Yankee-themed:

3rd — Johnny Appleseed.
A.J.: Hi, I'm a Mac.
CC: And I'm a PC.
A.J.: And together...
Both: We're able to photoshop ourselves into this picture.
