Batter Up!

Are you a baseball fan? Major league professional baseball is relatively new to Florida, though spring training has been a favorite Florida pastime for many years.

The Florida Memory project has a unique collection of photos of early and local Florida baseball teams on its website: Batter up! A Visual History of Baseball in Florida. There is even a photo of the 'Raiford Prison Team, 1939.' There are many photos on other subjects, too.

Of course, your library has books on baseball for children and adults. Check the 796.357 nonfiction section, or ask a library staff member for assistance.
