Chilly Ball

The national pastime, on ice. In the photo, a Sailor from USS SEADRAGON (SSN-584) waits for the delivery of the first baseball ever pitched at the North Pole, August 1960. (The crew laid out their diamond with the pitcher’s mound right on the Pole.) The C.O. later claimed to have hit a fly ball at 4:00 PM on Wednesday that wasn’t caught until 4:00 AM on Thursday.
