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!”
