Dean A. Sullivan (ed); Benjamin G. Rader (in). This compilation of 120 primary writings documents baseball’s first century, from a loosely organized village social event to the arrival of the National League. Collecting from a wide range of sources -- including newspaper accounts, letters, folk poetry, songs, & annual guides -- Dean Sullivan progresses chronologically from the earliest known baseball reference (1825) to the creation of the Doubleday Myth (1908). Includes an introduction by Benjamin Rader, author of “Baseball,” A History of America’s Game” & a professor of history at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. “Stories for the early days that no serious baseball fan would want to miss.” Illustrations.
