Next up - So to Speak
Now that our Ebbets Field book has been published, the next of my projects to see the light of day should be two books where I have contributed essays about 19th century base ball topics. Pictured above is the cover of Base Ball Founders, a collection of essays about early clubs in the Northeast which will include eight of my articles about prominent New Jersey clubs. It will be published by McFarland & Company and should be out during the spring or summer of next year.
Also coming out some time in 2013 is a Society of American Baseball Research publication - Inventing Base Ball. This is an anthology of articles about the 100 most important games of the 19th century. I have four essays in the book ranging from the Knickerbocker Club of New York's second match game in June of 1851 to the first National League game in 1876.
It's not clear which will be published first, but I'm looking forward to seeing both in print before this time next year. Stay tuned!
