Dead Ball days

Great stuff here: a montage of black-and-white baseball photographs from the Dead Ball Era, set to the theme from The Natural.

You’ll find a couple of pictures of Babe Ruth on the mound for the Red Sox, Ty Cobb at bat and Honus Wagner near the end. I love the uniform styles, too: the long sleeves, the collars turned up (the fact that there are collars at all!) the high socks and baggy pants. Early-20th-Century fashion is funny.
