9780786430673: Baseball on the Western Reserve: The Early Game in Clevland and Northeast Ohio, Year by Year and Town by Town, 1865-1900

Cleveland and the surrounding area was home to one of the earliest and most active baseball scenes outside of the eastern seaboard. This extraordinarily detailed history combines author commentary with first-hand accounts to document baseball's rapid development and popularization in the region during the decades following the Civil War. Ordered chronologically and then geographically by town, chapters follow the game's rise from the earliest reports on ball in 1841, to the era of loosely organized, town-to-town rivalries and semipro clubs, and finally through the early era of the professional, and eventually major league, sport.

"Exhaustively detailed...a glorious success. Any serious baseball fan would love to read [this book]. It's a home run of research and reporting...and reading." --Ohioana Quarterly
