Take me out to the (historical) ball game.

The Baseball Historian is presenting podcasts of classic moments in baseball history and interviews with players. Recent programs focus on Sandy Koufax, Roger Maris, Pee Wee Reese, Babe Ruth, and the 1949 World Series.

For more on Koufax, listen to this NPR piece on famed broadcaster Vin Scully's call of Koufax's no-hitter on June 30, 1962.

About the photo: Babe Ruth (right) with Gen. "Black Jack" Pershing, May 28, 1924. Library of Congress, Prints and Photographs Division, reproduction no. LC-DIG-npcc-11507.
