Sunday Baseball

Sept. 7, 1952 was a Sunday. Suits and ties and dresses for the ladies were normal “Sunday clothes” for the times.

Typical '50s View

Women like my mom (born 1921) were raised on baseball just like the men. I remember my mom playing with other moms from my Little League in the late '50s. Not softball but hardball. While they are fewer and fewer go to any game and you will see women of that generation keeping score.

Winner!

Based on the rest of the images in this series, I bet Hubert won many other prizes at the BEVCC.

Wow

If that photo was taken on September 20, it coincides exactly with the moment I was born. I hope she hit a home run.
