Reading Room HOME RUN "Little Leagues"

With the return of fans worshipping at the temples of the National Pastime (aka "baseball stadiums")...
...we thought we'd look at the origin of how many of us (myself included) first experienced organized baseball!
There was a short-lived surge in sports-themed comic books from 1949 to 1952.
This particular one-shot from Magazine Enterprises, produced in 1952 (but published in '53), was the last gasp of that cycle.
Produced/packaged by writer/artist Bob Powell's studio, this non-fiction historical piece was typical of the high-quality material he supplied to numerous publishers including Magazine EnterprisesStreet & Smith, Prize Comics, and Harvey Comics, from the mid-1940s to the early 1960s.
