Baseball in Europe: A Country by Country History

McFarland, Incorporated, Publishers, 10.1.2014 - 344 sivua
Many are aware that baseball’s European ancestry stretches back centuries, but few realize just how extensive the modern game’s history is on the Continent and British Isles. Baseball as we recognize it has been played there since the 1870s, and in several countries the players and devoted followers have included royalty, Hall of Famers from the U.S. major leagues, and captains of industry. Organized by country, this heavily researched book delves into the history of baseball in 40 nations, describing not only the efforts to spread the game but also the culture of baseball unique to Europe. Appendices cover topics from major leaguers who have played in European domestic leagues to a glossary of baseball terms in seven European languages.
