What Would It Be Like If All 43 American Presidents Played on the Same Baseball Team?

Mushman Productions announced the March 1st launch of the United States Presidents Baseball Club franchise. The enterprise, which playfully portrays all of America's presidents as members of their own baseball team, provides a fresh and entertaining look at history through the lens of our national pastime.

The Presidents Baseball Club opens up a new world and an entertaining learning process for history students of all ages.

"Teaching American history to students presents many challenges," says Marshall Garvey of Mushman Productions. "The Presidents Baseball Club opens up a new world and an entertaining learning process for history students of all ages." The concept comes to life in a set of trading cards and upcoming companion book that portray all 43 presidents in their roles both on the field and in the Oval Office. Currently on sale at the Nixon Presidential Library in Yorba Linda, CA, and online at http://www.presidentsbaseball.com, the cards appeal to collectors, baseball fans, teachers, and students. The front of each card features detailed artwork from San Diego-based artist Jorge Pacheco, while the back highlights historical facts and fascinating trivia. A sample card presents Woodrow Wilson as the clubhouse manager, a role that doesn't command the spotlight as much as a player or on-field coach. But reading the text, one finds that Wilson is crucial to maintaining order in the locker room thanks to his 14 Clubhouse Rules, a reference to the 14 Points for global peace he created after World War I. For students who don't respond to straight textbook learning, the cards and supporting website tools provide an engrossing alternative.

Fans of the U.S. Presidents Baseball Club can visit Presidents Park online at http://www.presidentsbaseball.com. The website features comic strips, detailed artwork of the team's stadium, a live inning from a game between the Presidents and Defense Secretaries, fun facts about each leader, a gift shop, and links to educational resources. According to Garvey, the franchise is expanding over the next year to include more teaching aids and collectible items. "There are limitless opportunities to espouse America's tremendous historical legacy," says Garvey.
