This classic poem is enriched by the old-fashioned black-and-sepia drawings and the additions of faux newspaper clippings that artfully surround the poem as it progresses. The pictures set the story firmly within its 19th-century origins with drawings of $0.20 tickets for the fictional baseball game and illustrations of faux advertisements for everything from neckties, soap to baseball gloves.

It is a genial tale, even with its glum conclusion, and this particular rendering captures all the sparkle that accompanied a 19th-century summer day spent at the games.
