Description

From the reviews of Early Innings and Middle Innings: "Dean Sullivan ...has sifted the archives to compile and edit nearly a century of lost or forgotten baseball essays and news reports...Give[s] readers a box seat at the game that became a national obsession."-London Review of Books. "A fascinating collection."-Washington Post. "This original collection of fascinating documents ...brings seldom-seen sources to the fingertips of historians and serious fans...There are many gems here."-Library Journal. "An enthralling collection of documents that take the reader through a colorful journey of baseball history. A great book."-Ernie Harwell. Late Innings: A Documentary History of Baseball, 1945-1972 is the third volume in Dean A. Sullivan's successful series on the vibrant history of baseball. Through 114 contemporary documents, Late Innings examines everything from Jackie Robinson's ground-breaking assault on the color barrier to Roger Maris's run on the home run record to the first stirrings of labor-management unrest in the 1970s. Late Innings also looks at exciting on-field activities, the antitrust controversy, issues of expansion, the effect of television on the game, and several other points of interest swirling around baseball in postwar America. Dean A. Sullivan is the editor of Early Innings: A Documentary History of Baseball, 1825-1908 and Middle Innings: A Documentary History of Baseball, 1900-1948, both available in Bison Books editions.
