baseball

June 29, 2009

i have been really getting back into baseball lately. when i was younger i was super into baseball, my dad would take me to yankee’s and phillies games, i loved the whole atmosphere of sitting in the outfield bleachers, eating hotdogs, watching players like don mattingly (a personal fav) and lenny dykstra. at heart i am a die-hard yankees fan, but living in philadelphia for the last 6 years i have come to love the phillies as well. last year i was lucky enough to witness them win the world series and also got to enjoy the amazing celebration on broad street that night, where fan’s over took the streets (i have never seen philadelphia so happy and i also never high fived so many people in my life!)

the library of congress has a flickr profile and they post incredible historical photographs all the time. here are some excellent baseball related photos that i enjoy:
