Look what I found! Boys of summer!
The Learning Page has a great collection of resource links and lesson plans at Baseball: As American as Apple Pie.
The holdings of the Library of Congress include many items that document the story of baseball through the decades. Many are now available online for viewing by anyone interested in America’s national pastime — photographs, films, official game guides, baseball cards dating from 1887, and more.
Here is a sampling:
A Thomas A. Edison film, 1898, photographed from one camera position behind home plate.
Babe Ruth sitting next to his wife in front of grandstands on the field at Comiskey Park in 1930. This photograph was taken by a Chicago Daily News photographer.
Spalding Base Ball Guides, 1889-1939 feature editorials from baseball writers on the state of the game, statistics, photographs, and analysis of the previous season for all the Major League teams and for many of the minor leagues across the nation.
A 1911 baseball card.
Philadelphia “Athletics”, Champions of the World, 1913 (panoramic photo).
