Baseball season is upon us (go Reds!), and so of course that means the Wexner Center's Rare Baseball Films is back.

Now in its 12th year, Friday's program features newsreels from the Hearst Metrotone News Collection at the UCLA Film & Television Archive.

Expect baseball greats Babe Ruth, Willie Mays, Frank Robinson and more, in addition to footage featuring baseball played by Little Leaguers, on donkeys, in canoes and more.
