Passing through both Pittsburgh and Philadelphia, I've been keeping an eye out for baseball hats for both the Pirates and Phillies. It wasn't difficult to find a Pirates hat in Pittsburgh.
The Phillies cap, however, took a couple of tries. I found plenty of Eagles and Flyers memorabilia, but it appears that even Philadelphia isn't thrilled with the Phillies!
I also happened to find a Minnesota Twins hat at a Goodwill in Pennsylvania (the same one where I also purchased The Best of Emmy Lou Harris and Jagged Little Pill.)
This now brings my MLB hat collection up to 23 of the 30 teams. (I'm still missing the Baltimore Orioles, Kansas City Royals, Detroit Tigers, Seattle Mariners, Houston Astros, Miami Marlins, and New York Yankees.) But it means I only have 6 more to find since I have no interest whatsoever in a Yankees hat!
I'll be delivering my favorite of my baseball presentations tomorrow at the Wernersville Public Library:
Tuesday, 26 April 2016, 6:30-7:30 p.m.
Wernersville Public Library, 100 N Reber St, Wernersville, PA
Baseball Before the Civil War
Although legend cites Civil War hero Abner Doubleday as "The Father of Baseball", historical evidence clearly indicates otherwise. This 60-minute multimedia presentation will observe and discuss the origins and early development of America's national pastime.
This blog is a workshop for developing my analyses of The Beatles' music.
