MEN, SUMMER AND BALLS
VGMH figures that any excuse for nine athletic men to strip down naked together is a good thing, so finding out that there's legitimate vintage artwork (versus something scribbled on the urinal privacy screens with a sharpie pen in the men's room) is downright fantastic! Now, the idea of having no protection while playing baseball may not be the best idea in the world, but what the heck. After all, the mural was designed to be similar to ancient Greek and Roman athletes, befitting the architecture of the Great Hall in the Library of Congress.
You have to really know where to look and what you're looking for, but the painting, which has been on the library's ceiling since 1897, includes one man who holds a catcher's chest protector and another guy who has a catcher's mask, but otherwise, they're stark naked.
