Boys of Summer teapot produced in China by Fitz and Floyd of Medford, Oregon, in 1995 as part of its Omnibus line. The Boys of Summer is commonly used to refer to a baseball team, as the sport is played during the summer months. It is generally accepted that baseball was invented by Abner Doubleday in Cooperstown, New York, in 1839. It is suggested that Doubleday invented the word "baseball", designed the diamond, indicated fielder positions, and wrote down the rules and the field regulations. This teapot commemorates Doubleday and the creation of America's National Pastime. A ribbon forms the handle of the teapot, and the baseball bat forms the spout.
