April 12, 1952: Ball One


Poor Charlie Brown would never really get much better than this. This is the first strip that puts both Charlie Brown and Schroeder into their respective baseball positions as pitcher and catcher.

Of special note: Charlie Brown's pitcher's mound is a lot more subtle in this strip than it would be later on.

  1. This is also one of few strips to show an actual kid taking the role of umpire. That job belongs to a disembodied voice for most of the strip's run.
