Editorial Reviews

Louisville and baseball have been inextricably linked ever since the sport's relative infancy. In 1877, four Louisville players were banned for life for throwing games; just seven years later, a happier connection was formed when hometown immigrant J. Frederick Hillerich first developed his famous Louisville Slugger. This entry in Arcadia's pictorial Images of Baseball is a home run for nostalgia fans.
