This lantern slide, “Batting III (c. 1900),” shows a baseball player standing alone and holding a bat high in the air. Behind him is a white house and some trees. He is likely a student at the International YMCA Training School (now known as Springfield College), which taught, among other subjects, sport skill instruction for the high jump, long jump, pole vault, discus, javelin, shot put, football, swimming, lawn tennis, baseball, basketball, rowing, and volleyball.
