A little too much of the older version of baseball for me.

Though it's not always the easiest book to follow, there is no disputing its got a spot in American history. I've done a good bit of reading about him before picking this book up, so I was ready for what I got. It has a very 19th century method of relating the early rules, a very colorful way of game write-ups and a complete glossary of terms (some of which I'd never heard of). It was an interesting read to say the least.
