Many of our favorite sports feel like they've been around forever, with their rules set in stone. This is of course not the case, and so here Gary Belsky and Neil Fine revisit the early days of 21 of the world's most popular sports, including football, baseball, soccer, tennis, volleyball, bowling, wrestling, cricket, ice hockey, stock car racing, and mixed martial arts. Illustrated throughout with line drawings, each sport's chapter includes a short history, the original rules, and a deeper look into an element of the sport, like the evolution of the baseball glove, sports whose origins can be traced back to warfare, and iconic championship trophies.
