Summary:
"This book concerns the Pennsylvania state leagues of the 1880s and 1890s. The rules were changing, the world around baseball, particularly the economy, was changing and things that would seem impossible today, or from 1903 to the 1950s, were happening every year. Owners, managers and league politics were often more interesting than the games"--Provided by publisher.
