Winter trees #1

Greene County, Virginia 

Spring training is underway in Florida and Arizona, places warm enough to get outside and toss the ball around even in February. Baseball is a game of tradition and nostalgia.  Babe Ruth, Dizzy Dean, Mickey Mantle, Joe DiMaggio—the names still echo from summers past.

Baseball and photography grew up together and the history of the game is well documented in pictures. Classic Spring Training Shots is a collection of photographs taken in spring training camps dating back to 1920. Click here to view and don't miss the 1936 shot of Dizzy Dean. It's a classic.
