    1931: THE YANKEES IN SPRING TRAINING.

    Our modern perception of Spring Training is a radical departure from its original purpose.  Today, throngs of fans and media descend on Arizona and Florida like clouds of locusts ravenously feasting on gossip, speculation and opportunities to co-mingle with the rich and famous.  In 1931 however, Spring Training was a private and unagitated event - a time to revitalize the body from winter's slumber and vices.  It was a closed meeting.  Communication within the team was directed by the Traveling Secretary and pocket fliers, such as this offered piece.  Surely, enough were printed for distribution within the franchise, and any remainder was methodically trashed.  With this simple three-panel foldover, Pennock knew that he would be staying at the Carling Hotel in Jacksonville for the trip North.  Bill Dickey knew he'd suit up on March 18th for a game against the Cardinals in Sarasota.  In a word, this simple flier cemented the course of events for those New York Yankees during their training responsibilities in 1931.  This one in particular survives in EX+ condition with a small tear at the bottom of one panel and minor mounting damage at one corner.
