Photos: Baseball- 1911

~ Ebbits Field

Its a Sunday so that means no financial news to get ulcers over.

And because its mid-February, that means Spring Training for Baseball in the US..  I thought it would be fun to take a trip down memory lane and look at some photos of the game of baseball played in 1911. The world was quite a different place back then as were the ballplayers- tough, rugged and with a take no nonsense attitude- the "Dead Ball" era at its finest. Notice how different the players looked then compared to today's multi-millionaires.

All photos are specifically from 1911.  Enjoy~
