Autumn Glory: Baseball’s First World Series
Louis P. Masur (au)
In 1903 the owner of the Pittsburgh Pirates challenged the Boston Americans to a play-off, which he was sure his team would win. They didn’t -- & that wasn’t the only surprise during what became the first World Series. This is the riveting account of these two pioneering weeks that changed baseball history. Before & even during the 1903 season, it seemed that baseball might succumb to the forces that had been splintering the sport for decades: owners’ greed, players’ rowdyism, fans’ unrest -- yet baseball prevailed. Masur shows how the first World Series consolidated baseball’s hold on the Amer. imagination & lets us see what one writer meant when he said, “Baseball is the melting pot at a boil, the most democratic sport in the world.” Illus.
