    This untitled illustration by cartoonist Clifford Berryman, which appeared in the Washington Evening Star on April 10, 1907, shows Uncle Sam offering a baseball bat called "National Big Stick" to a Washington Nationals baseball player. This is a direct reference to President Theodore Roosevelt's diplomacy policy. Uncle Sam offers a baseball bat called "National Big Stick" to a player in a Nationals uniform, a reference to President Theodore Roosevelt's big stick diplomacy.
