9780195014037: Baseball: The Golden Age (Vol 2)

In Baseball: The Golden Age, Harold Seymour and Dorothy Seymour Mills explore the glorious era when the game truly captured the American imagination, with such legendary figures as Babe Ruth and Ty Cobb in the spotlight.

Beginning with the formation of the two major leagues in 1903, when baseball officially entered its "golden age" of popularity, the authors examine the changes in the organization of professional baseball--from an unwieldy three-man commission to the strong one-man rule of Judge Kenesaw Mountain Landis. They depicts how the play on the field shifted from the low-scoring, pitcher-dominated game of the "dead ball" era before World War I to the higher scoring of the 1920's "lively ball" era, with emphasis on home runs, best exemplified by the exploits of Babe Ruth.

Note: On August 2, 2010, Oxford University Press made public that it would credit Dorothy Seymour Mills as co-author of the three baseball histories previously "authored" solely by her late husband, Harold Seymour. The Seymours collaborated on Baseball: The Early Years (1960), Baseball: The Golden Age (1971) and Baseball: The People's Game (1991).

From the Back Cover:

The second volume of Harold Seymour's definitive history of baseball brings back the glorious era when the game's hold over the imagination of the American people was strongest, and Babe Ruth and Ty Cobb were legendary figures. No one can match Dr. Seymour for grasp of the games, for thorough research into original sources never before examined, and ability to recapture its excitement and the tense expectancy with which the American public followed the teams' and players' exploits.

About the Author:
