9781886513457: Wide Awakes, Invincibles & Smokestackers; Early Baseball in Tall Timber Country

Here is the story of the regional roots of the great American sport, from the dawn of Base Ball fever" in the 1870s through the triumphal 1905 season of Everrett's "Smokestackers." This collection of early Northwest baseball stories and photos is funny, revealing, and a tribute to baseball, the wit of pioneer journalism, and the amusing constancy of human nature. The story is told almost entirely in the words of the original scribes who witnessed and recorded it.
