Baseball is a game I like a great deal, but never cottoned to having to cover the Atlanta Braves during my years in Atlanta. While I liked the Braves as a team, the daily newspaper deadlines for night games was tough! But beyond that, baseball, at its core, begins with the very young. These photos were taken during baseball games in June 1975 during my time at the Shreveport (LA) Journal. These boys were part of the 6-8 year-old group playing as part of the Broadmoor Family YMCA league. These little guys had a lot of heart.
