Summary
This third volume of the Baseball series, is the first book to be devoted entirely to the game outside of the professional league. Harold Seymour looks at the bond between baseball and boys through the decades, the game's place in institutions from colleges to prisons to the armed forces, the rise of women's baseball, and the struggles of black players and clubs from the later years of slavery up to the Second World War. Whether discussing the birth of softball or the origins of the seventh inning stretch, Dr. Seymour enriches his wide research with fascinating details and entertaining anecdotes as well as his own wealth of baseball experience, bringing to life the central role of baseball for generations of Americans
