Summary:
"The 1889 baseball season is unique in the history of baseball. Both leagues - the veteran National League and the upstart American Association - featured thrilling pennant races that were not decided until the final day of the season. There was excitement off the field as well: the players' union (known then as "the Brotherhood") sowed the seeds of the most ambitious player revolt in baseball history."

    schema:description ""This work presents accounts from the major newspapers of each of the four teams' cities - the New York Times, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle, the Boston Herald, and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch - to capture the day-by-day excitement of the 1889 pennant race and the passion that the press and public had for baseball. The National League race pitted the world champion New York Giants against the Boston Beaneaters - teams that accounted for 10 Hall of Famers and three players that spearheaded the player revolt."@en ;
