Description: Patricia Millen takes the reader back to the roots of baseball in this country, and follows its evolution to a national passion. While baseball's favorite myth regarding Abner Doubleday is proven to be false, America's favorite pastime is clearly a part of American history. Ice baseball; prison camps; Albert Spalding and the quest to prove baseball's American origin; and much more are discussed. A chronology of baseball in England and America (1621-1860), illustrations, plus brief excerpts from diaries, journals, letters and newspaper articles enhance the text.
