Sacrifice Hits


This postcard illustrates the baseball term Sacrifice Hit in an alternative and humorous way. It was mailed from Minneapolis, Minnesota on June 5, 1911 with a message that began as follows: "Say is that what you were doing yesterday so you could not come. I had chicken and pie and cake and a dandy dinner."

The glossary at mlb.com defines two types of Sacrifice Hits, Sacrifice Flies and Sacrifice Bunts:
Sacrifice Fly (SF)

A sacrifice fly occurs when a batter hits a fly-ball out to the outfield or foul territory that allows a runner to score. 

Sacrifice Bunt (SH)

A sacrifice bunt occurs when a player is successful in his attempt to advance a runner (or multiple runners) at least one base with a bunt. In this vein, the batter is sacrificing himself (giving up an out) in order to move another runner closer to scoring.
In a bunt play, the batter loosely holds the bat in front of the plate and intentionally taps the ball into play. The video below illustrates the use of the Sacrifice Bunt strategy.

Cuernavaca Earthenware



This is a real photo postcard of arte popular (folk art) for sale in Cuernavaca, Mexico. The title Loza de Cuernavaca translates as  "earthenware Cuernavaca." The name of the photo studio, Yañez Fotografica, appears in the upper left hand corner. The only information that I could find about this studio was in a listing of some postcards that stated "these wonderful old photo postcards are of Cuernavaca by the famous Yanez Fotografica studio, which photographed Mexico from around 1900 until circa 1930."



The photo is printed on Agfa postcard photo paper. This back is different from the Agfa backs generally used in the United States. I only was able to find a couple of used/dated postcards with this style of back, 1930 and WWII era.
