The 1914 baseball "World Tour" was significant in that it brought baseball to Hawaii, a place that had long been neglected by the national pastime of America. Here we find Billy Mitchell in uniform and posing a the ballpark in Hawaii as part of the tour. From the personal scrapbook of Dick Hoblitzel, this is a unique look at the ballpark in Honolulu! The quality and clarity are both exceptional and this is the earliest piece of photography showing major leaguers in Hawaii that we have ever seen! Dated on the back in Dick Hoblitzel's own hand!
