Hillsboro Boys' Baseball Team


Hillsboro Boys' Baseball Team


A boys' baseball team poses in a studio. Three boys sit cross-legged in the front, five others kneel, and two stand behind them. All but one of the boys wear light-colored, long-sleeved uniforms with knickers, dark socks, and caps. The uniforms are buttoned to the neck and each have a large 'H' on the left chest. In the center of the group, an older boy kneels, he wears a long sleeved shirt with an indecipherable symbol on the left chest and a dark, brimmed hat pushed back on head. Several boys display baseball globes, without webbing, and one of the seated boys has a catcher's mitt. In front of the group two bats lay crossed over each other, with a catcher's mask. Numbers have been inked on each boy's uniform.
