It's Summer - It's Time For Baseball!

Created on Jun 20, 2016 by Kathy Pinna
The earliest known mention of baseball in the US was in 1791. In the over 200 years since then, baseball went from a game among friends to the professional sport that is played today. These photos show the evolution of baseball - from kids to semi-pro, the All American Girls Baseball League, to the professional teams throughout history. It's summer, play ball!
