Don’t look back

It’s the middle of the winter, roughly midway from the World Series to the opening of spring training, and I need some baseball inspiration.

I found it in this photo of Bob Feller and Satchel Paige, from Oct. 15, 1946.

Feller led an All-Star team of American and National league players in a pair of exhibition games against Negro Leagues All-Stars in Kansas City, Mo. Paige, who soon would pitch with Feller on the Cleveland Indians, was with the Kansas City Monarchs then.

All of which reminds me: I need to post about the one cap I got as a Christmas gift, a Monarchs beauty. I’m saving that post for another day.
