Cricket Bats and Baseball

I've been reading up a little bit about the games that evolved to form modern sports, particularly baseball and cricket. I just happened across a link on one of the blogs I read to some old pictures of the early years of baseball, collected by A.G. Spalding (yes, that Spalding). Some of them are interesting.Here, an unidentified early ball player holds what is CLEARLY a cricket bat!

Another curious one...
