Karen and Kevin Flynn did a wonderful bringing to life the baseball affairs that were going on in the District in the early 1890’s. As I read the book, Baseball in the District The Dark Ages 1890 and 1891, I could very easily imagine what it was like to be a baseball fan in the nation’s capital at that time.
The Flynn’s must have spent hundreds of hours doing research for this book and I for one appreciate their efforts. I believe I am like a lot of Washington baseball fans when I say I know a fair amount about 20th century baseball in D.C. but not so much about 19th century baseball.
After reading the Flynn’s book I learned very quickly that Washington baseball fans have had some very bad and poorly managed baseball teams to root for in the early 1890’s.
I recommend this book to all baseball fans that appreciate the history of baseball in the nation’s capital.
