Game 1 with Willard Mullin's Golden Age of Baseball
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Willard MullinThings to seestaffField TripComing Attractions 7 Jun 2013 11:16 AM

Play Ball!

Well, baseball and softball season in the city leagues of Seattle started recently and we couldn't help but draw a little inspiration from the man who helped elevate baseball to its on-high status, Willard Mullin. The Golden Age of Baseball Drawings 1934-1972 collects for the first time Mullin's best drawings devoted to baseball — depictions of players like Joe DiMaggio, Ted Williams, Yogi Berra and the story of Mullin creating the Brooklyn Bum, the bedraggled mascot of the Brooklyn Dodgers. Whether you're in the dugout...

Dug out

Out ready to turn a play in the infield...

In field

Or catching fly balls in the outfield... (see me, I'm that little green and pink-banged blob on the right)

Fly ball

…this hardcover book is full of great baseball gags and political comics from a time when the nation needed something to keep up their moral. Our team, Scared Hitless, even decided to get uniforms to match the beautiful book jacket (or did Jacob Covey design it to match us?). 

Scared Hitless

See you at the next game with some more previews of the Willard Mullin's Golden Age of Baseball: Drawings 1934-1972. For Seattle people, we play at the Cal Anderson park on Monday nights, 8pm. Come on by and check out this advance!
