‘Take me out to the ball game!’

Isn’t this a great old photograph? It’s the members of the 1891 Rose Polytechnic Institute baseball team. The photographer really was creative in his positioning of the coach and players. There’s nice balance and you can clearly see each person’s face. And the men’s ascots are a wonderful touch!

This photo of the Rose Polytechnic Institute baseball team, dated as the 1890s, is vastly different than the previous photo. First of all, it’s obviously no studio photograph. It’s much more casual. Many of the players aren’t even looking at the camera! And the mustache is much bigger!

Both of these images are part of the collection of the Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology Archives, Logan Library.
