At US Penitentiary Alcatraz, baseball was a way to escape the monotony of prison life. Inmates were allowed to play softball in the recreation yard on Saturdays and Sundays. Competition was fierce, and prisoners named their teams after popular clubs of the day, like the Cardinals, Cubs, and Giants. In October 1955, radio jacks were installed in cells, and as a special treat, inmates were given the day off to listen to Game 7 of the World Series.
Did You Know?
At Alcatraz, due to the scarcity and preciousness of sports equipment, balls hit over the recreation yard wall were considered outs, not home-runs.
Whistle - USP Alcatraz
O-167Regular price $7.95
No weapons were allowed on the floor of the Alcatraz cellhouse, so officers carried whistles to summon help in case of trouble.

Like many pieces of equipment used in the Alcatraz penitentiary, the brass whistle was originally designed for military use.
