Hey batter, batter! Period Paper is please to take you out to the ball game with a collection of historical baseball ads and images that's sure to be a "big hit". Take the mound and strike out the side with pitching legends such as Catfish Hunter, Tommy John, Mudcat Grant, and Satchel Paige. Then step up to the plate in the home half of the inning with sluggers the likes of Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, and Joe Morgan, (and for this once, enjoy getting caught looking!). Follow the ball into the gap, pray the outfielder doesn't flash some leather on the play, and bask in the glory of thousands of cheering fans in bleachers of the Polo Grounds or Wrigley Field! But since there's no "three clicks your out" rule, feel free to take your time finding that sweet-spot!
