About this title


A good idea has many fathers; baseball is such an idea, and an astonishing number of these pioneer came home at last to Brooklyn's Green-Wood Cemetery. This book pays them tribute, not only as ball players, but as men in full.

About the Author:

Thomas W. Gilbert writes on baseball, food, travel and politics. He is the author of Roberto Clemente, Baseball and the Color Line, and several other books on baseball history. From his Greenpoint Brooklyn stoop he can throw a baseball to the former site of the Manor House tavern, where members of the Eckford Baseball Club enjoyed a post game drink or two in the 1850s.
