Description
A century ago, prior to becoming the national pastime, baseball was a very different game—universal regulations did not exist, cheating was commonplace, and the players' gear was often homemade. Along with an overview of this highly competitive, rough-and-tumble era, here are short biographies and black and white photographs of Honus Wagner, Christy Mathewson, Max Carey, Larry Doyle, and many other players, coaches, umpires, and officials who paved the way for modern baseball.
