The Art of the Game

Who: William Peebles
What: Handcrafted Fine Base Ball Goods
Where: Norwell, MA
Why: William is a contemporary industrial designer whose heart is rooted in the long bygone era of turn-of-the-19th-century base ball. He's a walking encyclopedia of exhaustive research on the sport from 1850 to 1920, and he meticulously crafts each ball, bat and glove himself, one at a time, based on careful study of original game artifacts. Collectors and true fans appreciate his authenticity and vintage aficionados thrill at his designs. Base ball never had a better advocate.
And yes, it's base ball, two words, just like they spelled it way back when.
