Stitch and Pitch

There's something for everyone at the Cooperstown National Baseball Hall of Fame, even for knitters.

These are warm up sweaters. Too bad they were behind glass; I would have liked to have inspected them more closely.

They look like they were knit with a bulky yarn, mostly just stockinette, with a shawl collar, button band, cuffs, and pockets.

Apparently, they were not standard issue.

And let's not forget the stockings.

Nor should we forget the ladies.

If you have seen "A League of Their Own," these outfits will look familiar.

Even our fair city boasted a team on the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League (AAGPBL), the Fort Wayne Daisies.

Despite all our gallivanting about the country, not much knitting is going on. Now that we are in Massachusetts, part of the problem is any knitting I might accomplish while a passenger in the car is interrupted by having to provide a second pair of eyes for the driver. One bumper sticker said it all: "MASSHOLE"
