Spiceland Academy Baseball Team

Description: Five members of the Spiceland Academy Baseball Team pose in the photographer's studio. African American John "Snowball" Merida is in the group. It is thought that the man on the right is J. Estes Ratcliff. The players wear uniforms with "Spiceland" across the front and lounge on the floor with mitts, masks, and baseballs. One player wears a tag around his neck that says "Base Ball 1900."
