This picture was taken in the Baseball Hall of Fame. Explain the weird thing/things in the picture.

Answer = Edward Carl Gaedel (June 8, 1925 – June 18, 1961) was an America with dwarfism who became famous for participating in a Major League Baseball game. Gaedel gained immortality in the second game of a St. Louis Browns doubleheader on Sunday, Aug. 19, 1951. Weighing 65 pounds , and standing 3 feet 7 inches tall, he became the shortest player in the history of the major leagues. He made a single plate appearance and was walked with four consecutive balls before being replaced by a pinch-runner at first base. His jersey, bearing the uniform number “⅛”, is displayed in the Baseball Hall of Fame.
