  • Old baseball books at archive.org

    If you search for keyword "baseball" in category "texts" at archive.org, you get over 500 hits. Some are worthless, but there are old Reach Guides covering many of the years from the 1890s to the 1920s, an instruction book for boys by John McGraw, books by Monte Ward, Johnny Evers, and all kinds of odd stuff and one-offs that people used to travel the country searching for in dusty archive stacks or on grainy microfilm. And it's just a few clicks away.

    http://archive.org/search.php?query=...iatype%3Atexts

    There are several ways to read them. One of the easiest is archive.org's on-line reader, which gives you an excellent visual image and is searchable.

    If anyone has any links or searches to share for periodicals on archive.org, I'd be most grateful.
    The ball once struck off,
    Away flies the boy
    To the next destin'd post,
    And then home with joy.

    This may help, not sure but worth advising of, listing various guides including Reach and some sporting news among others.
