Baseball at Irwinville Farms

Pitching at Baseball Game Irwinville Farms GA Photograph by John Vachon Courtesy Library of Congress

In a previous post I discussed the popularity of baseball at Irwinville Farms. This group of photographs represents a cache of lesser-known images, outtakes that weren’t chosen or approved for publication for one reason or another. I think they are as interesting as the better-known images. Identifications of players or people are welcome.
