The Margaret and Franklin Steele Sheet Music Collection includes over 350 pieces of sheet music that document the role of music in baseball history. The collection has been arranged into three series: I) General Baseball Music; II) Music About Leagues, Teams, and Players; and III) Music From Films and Musicals. The collection documents America's love of baseball through popular songs between 1885 and 1992, while providing excellent graphic images and depictions of baseball fans, players, and management through the years. The collection includes a wide variety of music written about baseball, songs with an indirect link to the game, and other popular music that uses baseball art on its cover.
