PHOTO: Baseball On The Mind

For a variety of reasons – maybe a couple of baseball-related projects in the hopper – I’ve got our national pastime on my mind.

The photo above comes from “The Commons”, a collection of public-domain photos on Flickr.

I’ve written about the collection before. Baseball, even.

In other news, I knew about the dead-ball era and the recent steroids era. I don’t recall seeing “The Force” era, but here’s the proof. Photos don’t lie.
