Starting the Season
A cartoon of children picking teams to start a baseball game. The cartoon was drawn by Clare Briggs for the book "Oh Skin-nay! The Days of Real Sport" in 1913. The book was written by poet Wilbur D. Nesbit and portrays a year in the life of small-town America through the eyes of the twelve-year-old boy - wood gathering, sleigh rides, games of post office, swimming holes, and sandlot ball games.
