President Clinton Yearns for Baseball

From August, 1994 to April, 1995, the Major League baseball players went on strike. This strike was the first strike since 1904, which was the only time in history that the World Series was cancelled. President Bill Clinton signed this ball and wrote "My wish: America's children can see baseball again! — Bill Clinton, 2-95." This ball is also signed by Al Gore.
