$ 25.00

    According to Island tradition, baseball was played on Nantucket well before history records it as having been invented by Abner Doubleday.
    The "Society of Town Ballers"created a four-team league i the 1830s with players from whaling ships, their family members and neighborhood players.
    The ball was made of baleen strips from a whale wrapped in the rubbery skin of its flipper. The bats were derived from Wampanoag war clubs refashioned to a friendlier purpose.
    The league thrived in the years when the whaling industry was booming and drew great crowds to the games to watch local whalers and baseball players enjoy a bloodless pastime in warmer  months.
    The scene shown here is on Cliff side and it seems like a beautiful day for a ball game.
