I picked today’s cover because spring training has started and I’m excited! Go Rangers! I like that the baseball player in the background looks like he’s really thinking about whether or not he’d rather be playing softball than baseball. Sure, the baseball players may make more money but the softball players get better uniforms! I’m worried, though, because I have played enough softball to know that’s not the best way to try to field a ground ball. She’s going to have a lot of back pain unless she starts bending her knees.
This cover is from June of 1939. The artist was Robert E. Lee, who shared a famous name but, as far as I can tell, was not related to the Confederate general.
