Thread: Book Inquiry

    Book Inquiry

    Wondering if anyone has read Baseball Founders or Base Ball Pioneers, both edited by Peter Morris, William Ryczek and others? I have two questions for anyone familiar with these volumes.

    (1) Are they, in fact, two totally difference volumes or is one simply a revision of the earlier book? What's the difference between the two?

    (2) How much would you recommend either/both of these?

    "I am led to suspect that some of the electorate is very dumb." -- Henry P. Edwards
    "You have a Hall of Fame to put people in, not keep people out." -- Brian Kenny
    "There's no such thing as a perfect ballot." -- Jay Jaffe

    Disclosure: I was a contributor to both volumes.

    They are separate books, together constituting a two volume work. They are collections of brief histories of early baseball clubs. The difference between the two is geographical coverage. They are both listed on Amazon and you can use the "Look Inside" function to get a taste of what they are about, and something you will spend your money on.
