Suitable for ages up to two years old, this toy is destined for the major leagues.
In the National Archives, you can discover all sorts of baseball-related records, from player-related civil suits pursued in federal courts; military service recreational activities; a surveyor's sketch and notes for a proposed new stadium in Washington, D.C.; equipment patent drawings; a restraint-of-trade action filed by one bubble gum company against another over issuance of player cards; and a World War I vintage picture of female ushers at a ball game.
There's also an equally charming and seldom-glimpsed image of Ty Cobb, Babe Ruth, and Tris Speaker, three one-time luminaries of the game in their baseball dotage, posing together in 1941 in connection with war bond and Army-Navy relief fund efforts, as well as numerous photographs of amateur and professional players taken for foreign propaganda and cultural purposes.
