Atlantic Base Ball Club, of Brooklyn, was organized August 14,1855. While they reigned they were called the Champions of America. During the civil war, this league was so tough, they did NOT use gloves! Back in 1866 the entrance to watch America's First Baseball League cost $.50 cents. Everybody in Brooklyn was fascinated when in that same year, the team had a 36 game winning streak. This t-shirt is a homage to the birth of a nation and our past time love with American Baseball.
