Baseball Uniform Shirt, Worn by Harry B. Mosley, circa 1920

Summary

Recreational sports leagues have been an important part of work life from the late 1800s to the present. Company-sponsored teams are thought to provide good advertising as well as a way to have employees "play hard" and work hard. This well-worn uniform was worn by a Lincoln Automobile Company worker in the greater Detroit area in the 1920s.
