KIRKUS REVIEW

The story of baseball's first great pitcher and founder of the sporting goods house which bears his name. Almost a contemporary of the game, Spalding was born in 1850, and performed in the days when hurling was done underhand. After his pitching career he became president of the Chicago White Stockings, and began publishing a Guide to baseball, as well as starting a sports goods business. An interesting story about one of the familiar names in baseball.
