The American Pastime knows no boundaries, and this photo -- taken in Georgia in 1964 -- proves that fact as well as anything.

In it, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. pitches a ball to his son in their backyard on a lovely November day, just four months after the historic passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
