America's Pastime & The Great War

Aug 29, 2014

When World War I broke out 100 years ago, there was another war of sorts going on within the United States.

In his latest edition of Reading Baseball, Pete Peterson tells us about an upstart professional league in 1914 that wanted to become part of Major League Baseball and how MLB adjusted to America's involvement in the "Great War."
 

Reading Baseball is a series of essays and commentaries by Richard "Pete" Peterson, the author of Pops: The Willie Stargell Story and Growing Up With Clemente.
