Overview

Baseball in the District is at its the lowest point. The book is chronological and written using information from the period. This is how they viewed the players. Also historical events are mentioned as they happened.

The Player's Rebellion of 1890 ends shock waves which creates a perfect storm in Washington. While the storm rages around him Walter Hewitt sits and does nothing. HIs players jump to Buffalo and he lacks a stadium to play in. Whatever friends he has in the League abandon him and Washington becomes a minor league town.

Abandoned by the major leagues the District witnesses perhaps the worst professional team in its existence, the 1890 team. Washington returns to the majors in 1891 under the leadership of Michael Scanlon.The 1891 team is so bizarre that a movie could easily be made about it. It is a sad end of one of the fixtures of baseball in the District. The rooters can only hope that the next owners will bring them a winner.

Karen and I have been to baseball games all over the country. We love the game and the players. Baseball lends itself to conversation and we have met some of the best people in the world and enjoy making new friends.

    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.
