KIRKUS REVIEW

Written by a Professor, and once batboy of the Brooklyn Dodgers, this is the first of a two volume history of baseball, as it evolved from a child's game to a young gentleman's sport to a big business monopoly. Harold Seymour covers the game decade by decade--the clubs, labor policies, operation, rivalries and wars, the changes and improvements in the game, the players, language, literature, etc. An extensive work which should awaken lively interest on the part of spectators.
