Unsure? Ask an Expert!

Patten and McSpadden’s “Book of Baseball” is one of the best if not the best reference to the earliest days of baseball, America’s pastime. This enormous book was published before the so-called ‘live-ball era’ even began in 1920. This ‘dead-ball era’ book covers lost-arts of baseball including underhand pitching, as well as the innovation of now common plays like the catcher signaling pitches to pitcher.

 

This book includes 232 illustrations throughout, many of which are instructional and teach baseball skills; others still are portraits of iconic ball players from pre-1911 baseball. Of course, no baseball reference from this era would be complete without commentary and notes on iconic players and coaches such as Ty Cobb, Connie Mack, Nap Lajoie, Tris Speaker, Honus Wagner, Christy Mathewson, and John McGraw!
