Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

"Peter Morris is able to demonstrate what is an essential truth: that Americans’ attachment to their national pastime is fundamentally and forever local. . . . The book is a marvel of scholarship and synthesis."
—John Thorn, coeditor of Total Baseball: The Official Encyclopedia of Major League Baseball and author of Treasures of the Baseball Hall of Fame

"Peter Morris has accomplished a major feat with Baseball Fever: by using one geographic area as a mirror, he reflects the early history of the game for the entire nation."
—Paul Dickson, author of The New Dickson Baseball Dictionary and The Hidden Language of Baseball

About the Author

Peter Morris, a former English instructor at Michigan State University, is a specialist in nineteenth-century baseball and an active member of the Society for American Baseball Research.

I bought this book for a baseball fan in my family. It has a lot of detail for people who enjoy the history aspect of baseball. I suspect that we will be visiting a lot of these sites in years to come.

My man being interested in baseball, LOVES this book. He has recently started playing vintage ball and is interested in starting a local group. This has been an enormous amount of help. Great information and details. We will be referring to it regularly.
