The old ballgame

Since the Big Guy has been watching the National League playoffs, I’m sharing a few baseball-related items I saw when I visited the California Museum in downtown Sacramento. These were part of the temporary exhibit titled “California at Bat: America’s Pastime in the Golden State,” which runs through December 30, 2018. Nowadays, Sacramento’s minor league baseball team is the River Cats; but from the early 1900s until 1973 it was the Sacramento Senators/Solons.
