Peanuts: Charlie Brown, His Friends, and Baseball (1966 - Part 3)

by Paul Semendinger

***

I always enjoyed Charles Schulz’s famous Peanuts comic strips. Like so many people, those characters were a big part of my childhood.

A number of years ago, a collection of books (The Complete Peanuts) was produced that chronicle the complete and entire collection of every single Peanuts comic strip. With every single strip available, I decided to set about reading the entire collection. It is fascinating seeing how the strip and the characters developed over time.

I thought it would be fun to chronicle here the history of how Charles Schulz used baseball in the Peanuts strips.

I hope you enjoy this historical look back at Charlie Brown and his friends and the wonderful game of baseball…

Each comic strip comes from the wonderful site: Peanuts Wiki.. *** THE 1966 “SEASON” (Part 3)

Scattering the Ashes.jpeg

"Scattering The Ashes has all the feels. Paul Russell Semendinger's debut novel taps into every emotion. You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll reexamine those relationships that give your life meaning." — Don Burke, writer at The New York Post

The Least Among Them.png

"This charming and meticulously researched book will remind you of baseball’s power to change and enrich lives far beyond the diamond."

—Jonathan Eig, New York Times best-selling author of Luckiest Man, Opening Day, and Ali: A Life

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
