Reading Baseball: Bicentennial

Apr 13, 2018

Illinois' bicentennial year in 2018 features plenty of celebrations.

In this bicentennial edition of Reading Baseball, Pete Peterson recounts how Chicago's two Major League Baseball teams dominated the early part of the 20th century and how a Chicago man helped save the game in the 19th century.

Reading Baseball is a series of essays and commentaries by Richard "Pete" Peterson, co-author, with his son, Stephen, of The Slide: Leyland, Bonds and the Star-Crossed Pittsburgh Pirates and editor of The St. Louis Baseball Reader.
