King George V attends a Baseball Game 4 July 1918

Found this interesting picture of King George V of England from July 4, 1918 in Gorrell's History of the American Expeditionary Forces Air Service. He's shaking hands with the captain of the US Army baseball team at a game between the US Army and Navy that was part of a 4th of July celebration.
