Headlines from around the Continuum: October 23, 2014

A sampling of baseball-related headlines from the Newseum, with the occasional note from me on what they are talking about:

(Note that I try to copy the style of the paper as well, hence why some are in ALL CAPS while others aren’t. Also, I ignored extremely basic-and extremely common- headlines like “Royals win” or “Game 3 tomorrow”. I’ll occasionally make an exception for the team’s “home” newspapers)
