I was intrigued by this little advertising piece on the second floor from a barnstorming tour through Fresno by Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig. Anybody remember "Firemen's Baseball Park"? Where was it in Fresno? Also, the baseball game that Saturday in 1936 was to begin at 3:00, two hours following kickoff of Fresno State's game with St. Ignatius.
A pictorial recreation of Ebbets Field, the venerable home of the Brooklyn Dodgers. In front of the picture is the home plate taken from the stadium before the wrecking ball hit after the Dodgers moved west to Los Angeles.
Thanks to Rick Holland's advice, Rick Northen and I will be spending Tuesday in Cooperstown. I love this little hamlet! All the storefronts are devoted to baseball -- memorabilia, souvenirs, etc. It is truly a baseball fan's oasis. I'll be back Tuesday evening with more pictures of the history of baseball as captured in the National Hall of Fame in Cooperstown.
