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.
