        [Small Archive]: Material related to the American Baseball Academy

      Near Fine. Small archive of material related to the short-lived American Baseball Academy founded in New York City by Malcolm Child and Phil Rizzuto in 1951. Child apparently was bit of a hustler, and came up with the concept in order to combat juvenile delinquency in Manhattan. The Academy was heavily staffed with professional ballplayers, mostly New York Yankees and Brooklyn Dodgers, with Phil Rizzuto serving as the President of the Academy. According to an article published in a 1951 issue of Reader Digest the academy was "divided into Manhattan and Brooklyn branches,[with] 2400 boys from 13 to 18 doing nothing but learn baseball." The article was apparently overly hopeful given that virtually no record of the Academy existence beyond 1951 except for the four books published in The American Baseball Academy Library series.List:1.

Rackham was originally offered this as a first illustrated edition, but being busy at the time declined, a decision he was later to regret.
