Play Ball!

Written on: June 9th, 2010 in Delaware HistoryPhotographsResearch Room

It’s that time of year: the crack of a bat, the smell of hot dogs, and screaming parents.  Yeah, it’s baseball season!  Whether it’s little league, school, or professional, Delaware has plenty of action for you.  Did you know you can see how baseball has evolved in Delaware here at the Archives?  We have photographs from the Dover Phillies, the Blue Rocks, the Eastern Shore League, Little League, colleges, and high schools. There have also been books written about Delaware’s baseball.  You can check out America’s Pastime in the First State by Paul Bauerschmidt, The Blue Rocks Past and Present by Elbert Chance, Judy Johnson Delaware’s Invisible Hero by Ellen Rendle and many more.  To see what books are available, check out the Delaware Library Catalog.

 To view some of the pictures we have on baseball, view the baseball album on our Facebook page.
