Description (Brief)
Not to be confused with the identically named British newspaper, The Sporting Life was an American periodical focused on baseball, hunting, and other sports. Published from 1883-1917, and again from 1922-1924, the newspaper, along with longer lasting rival, The Sporting News, helped to popularize spectator sports in the United States. Today, The Sporting Life is perhaps best remembered for the baseball cards it made available to subscribers.
The Sporting Life produced promotional baseball schedules such as this example made for the 1907 American League Baseball Season.
The American League began Major League play in 1901, first playing its senior rival, The National League, in the inaugural World Series in 1903.
In 1907, the American League was comprised of 8 teams; the Detroit Tigers, The Philadelphia Athletics, The Chicago White Sox, the Cleveland Naps, the New York Highlanders, the St. Louis Browns, the Boston Americans, and the Washington Nationals.
