The second volume of Harold Seymour's definitive history of baseball brings back the glorious era when the game's hold over the imagination of the American people was strongest, and Babe Ruth and Ty Cobb were legendary figures. No one can match Dr. Seymour for grasp of the games, for thorough research into original sources never before examined, and ability to recapture its excitement and the tense expectancy with which the American public followed the teams' and players' exploits.
Harold Seymour, Ph.D., baseball's leading historian, was a college history professor for more than fifteen years. Moreover, he knows baseball firsthand through experience as batboy for the Brooklyn Dodgers, high school PSAL and college player, organizer and field manager of amateur and semipro teams, and major-league bird dog.
Dorothy Seymour Mills is the author or co-author of 25 books, including historical novels and children's books. She is a member SABR, the North American Society for Sports History, and the Association for Women in Sports Media.
