Righty-Lefty?

Am I reading this photo the wrong way? Looks to me like she's a right-hander in a left-hander stance? Or maybe the plate is behind her, past the tree, and it's her fancy doozy hop-a-long delivery? Or is that how they did it back then?

Delightful

What a joyous picture. But when did we start using baseball gloves instead of oven mitts?
