1914 was a big year in baseball. On April 22, a nineteen year-old pitcher named Babe Ruth made his debut in the International League with a six-hit, 6-0 win for Baltimore over Buffalo.  The same year Ty Cobb signed with the Tigers for another year.

Baseball was also a big part of the sports scene in Eatonville too. Here’s the Eatonville 1914 team.
