Baseball in Alaska


From the Alaska State Library in Juneau comes an announcement about the new “Baseball in Alaska” online exhibit.
Many fascinating photographs of Alaska’s baseball history can be viewed at:
Boys baseball team, Juneau (ASL-P87-2520)
According to the ASL, “The photographs in the online exhibit provide a glimpse into what baseball was like in Alaska over the past century. The images include group portraits of teams from St. Paul, Metlakatla, and many towns in between, a former Governor throwing out the ceremonial first pitch, baseball fans on their way to watch a game, and a mighty swing and miss!”
