From Publishers Weekly:

A successor to the quarterly Baseball History , this is the first of what are projected to be annual collections of pop-scholarly pieces about the national pastime. The anthology gets off to a fine start with selections about baseball in a Southern prison camp during the Civil War; the effect of the Great Depression of 1930-39 on the sport; a portrait of Moses Fleetwood Walker, the first black major leaguer, who antedated Jackie Robinson by almost a century, and an especially perceptive analysis of why Commissioner Kenesaw M. Landis held such unchallenged power for so long. Other essays portray local heroes and major league players who are often forgotten. The book ends with a whimper rather than a bang, however, with pompous and tortured book reviews. Illustrations not seen by PW.

From Library Journal:

This is the premier edition of a baseball annual offering a scholarly approach to the national pastime. Included are articles with a mostly sport-in-society themebaseball during the Great Depression, the game as organized and played in a Confederate prison, the first black major league player (Moses Fleetwood Walker, not Jackie Robinson, according to Levine), and the unionization of the umpires. A comprehensive survey of current baseball literature (1987-88) along with full reviews of the year's best baseball books nicely supplement the collection. Altogether, a well-documented work that should satisfy students of the game. For comprehensive sports collections. William H. Hoffman, Ft. Myers-Lee Cty. P.L., Fla.
