These two early baseball texts are well met (and well married) in the recently published book that was edited by Trey and Geri Strecker. While Our Base Ball Club focuses more on illustrating how "baseball fever" could overtake a nineteenth century American town, both texts demonstrate the contemporary significance of the game.
