From the Publisher:
The author of A Game of Inches weaves together a tableau of long-forgotten primary documents to take a fresh look at the early amateur years of baseball and the sense of joy that once pervaded its players.
In this fascinating and meticulously researched book, Peter Morris tracks the madcap development of baseball's rules and practices in the early days of the game. Many aspects of America's national pastime that today's fans take for granted had to be invented over time: the strike zone, sliding, bunting, and even umpires. The balls have changed, the bats have changed, the pitching mound has been lowered, and the spitball outlawed. And with every shift, change, and rule over the years, the players and fans have screamed in outrage--much as they do today in the heat of the drug-enhancement scandals.
