Vintage Baseball Passion

I love Baseball. It's the greatest game around. It's nice to see that back in Chicago 1922 that passion was also shared. Here is a Attendance Notice postcard found on eBay from Schurz High School inquiring about a truancy. Flora missed a week of school. Unfortunately, she got whacked pretty bad, but she seems to not care. She can't wait to get back on the bike after falling off.
"(I) was absent because Verna Arton, by accident, hit me in the mouth with a (base)ball bat. Cut my lip open and knocked 1 (one) tooth out and (the) rest were knocked crooked."
Then she follows with this.
"What a feeling of rejoice(ing) to get back to play(ing) (base)ball."
Rejoice! Yes, getting back to playing ball is a reason to celebrate.

    code: enate.. As in, "After she got her teeth fixed, she and her Mom went shopping enate at Mickey D's..." :-)
