"one of the more compelling sports-related publications to come along in a great while...unostentatious, solid, and a great read"--Library Journal; "the journal both embodies recent trends and provides a forum for expanding upon them. Base Ball thus represents an exciting and important contribution to literature on the sport. John Thorn, a respected historian of early baseball history, is the journal's editor and Base Ball has a first-rate editorial board and, as a result, already appears poised to be among the finest journals dedicated to the history of sports"--Arete; "never comes up short in the quality of its content. In addition to the fine research articles there is a valuable section of book reviews, mostly dedicated to books pertaining to 19th century baseball"--Nineteenth Century Notes; "an exciting and important contribution to literature on the sport...seeks to chronicle, analyze, and expand our understanding of the game during its long, and seemingly getting longer, pre 1920 phase"--Society for American Baseball Research Bibliography Committee Newsletter.
