A cartoonist who goes by the name of “Woodie” illustrates the fund raising efforts of Lowell Thomas' softball team.
This New York Times cartoon printed on April 2, 1939 depicts a group of nine “young” men planning their next ball game against the next government softball team that will accept their challenge.
“Hillbilly cartoonist” P. Webb portrays a typical “Nine Old Men” at bat.
Woodie shows a player heading to Pawling for another softball game.
Webb conjures up another meeting of the minds speculating about next season.
