Description
Forget that you ever heard the name Abner Doubleday, says John Thorn. In this illustrated history for fans 6 to 10, Thorn replaces that old myth and other tall tales of baseball with the real story of how a game played by kids with bats and balls became a sport loved by millions around the world. Also the author of Total Baseball, The Hidden Game of Baseball, and Treasures of the Baseball Hall of Fame, Thorn was named the Official Historian of Major League Baseball in 2011. Here he chronicles baseball's first games, first fields, and first leagues, and recounts his own discovery of the oldest reference to the sport in American history, a 1791 Massachusetts ordinance banning Base Ball.
