Squeeze Play in Beantown revolves around an attempt to bring about Sunday baseball to nineteenth century Boston, where recreation on the Sabbath was prohibited by law. Rowe's protagonist, Will Beaman, seeks to have the National League's Boston Beaneaters play the Cincinnati Reds on a Sunday late in the torrid 1897 pennant race between Boston and Baltimore. Frederic Remington's first exhibition of his western art, feminist Emma Goldman's push for radical reforms, John F. "Honey Fitz" Fitzgerald's ambition to be mayor of Boston, and England's return of the famous William Bradford history of Plymouth Colony to Massachusetts provide the backdrop for Will Beaman's scheme.
