Reading Room HOME RUN "LIttle Leagues"

With the return of the National Pastime (despite the cold weather)...
...we thought we'd look at the origin of how many of us (myself included) first experienced organized baseball!
As we mentioned yeterday, there was a short-lived surge in sports-themed comics from 1949 to 1952.
This particular one-shot from Magazine Enterprises, produced in '52 (but publshed in '53), was the last gasp of that cycle.
Produced/packaged by writer/artist Bob Powell's studio, this historical piece was typical of the high-quality material he supplied to numerous publishers including ME, Street & Smith, and Harvey Comics, from the mid-1940s to the early 1960s.
