'Diamonds in the Rough' is a special photographic journey through the dusty back roads of rural America featuring pictures of our national pastime played the way it was meant to be played, by people who truly love base ball in its earliest form.

This collection is a tribute to those people and their enduring love for this uniquely American game.

This labor of love covers a two year period where Ray Shaw traveled hundreds of miles to capture the essence of vintage base ball played by its ancient rules.
 
 


Special thanks go to the teams, players, organizations, friends and family who helped make this event possible.
