Going by the uniforms, this first photo is probably from the late 1800s or early 1900s. I always love seeing trick photography, especially from way back.
I guess you can say these ballplayers are meeting their new shortstop.
This second photo makes me laugh every time I look at it. The player looks disinterested and acts like it's no big deal that he just caught the ball. He's even enjoying a smoke.
Lets play smoke and catch!
I believe the baseball team in this next photo is made up of Air Force men. The photo came with a bunch of snaps from overseas during WWII and after.
Baseball is baseball no matter where it's played.
For the last photo we have a nice looking girl getting ready to enjoy a ballgame. Looks like she has pretty good seats too! I was curious to know what ballpark she was at.
Girls love baseball too!
After some internet searches, I realized she's at Sportsman's Park home of the St. Louis Cardinals and St. Louis Browns. Here's a close-up of the scoreboard.
It looks like she's holding a scorecard. Yes, that's exactly what she's holding and to be specific she's holding a 1953 St. Louis Cardinals program like the one seen below. Thanks to the pitcher's foot, I was able to find the scorecard and date the snapshot. (Scorecard image source comes from ebay.)
In 1953, Sportsman's Park was sold to Anheuser-Busch and the name changed to Busch Stadium. This was also the last season for the St. Louis Browns as they moved to Baltimore and became the Orioles.
