For more than five decades, pioneering researcher Dorothy Seymour Mills has studied and written about baseball's past. With this groundbreaking book, she turns her attention to the historians, stat hounds, and many thousands of not-so-casual fans whose fascination with the game and its history, like her own, defies easy explanation. As Mills demonstrates, baseball elicits a passion--and inspires a slightly off-kilter, obsessive behavior--that is only slightly less interesting than the people who indulge it.

The late Dorothy Seymour Mills was the author of 24 books. The first female historian in the Society for American Baseball Research, she was a member of the Association for Women in Sports Media and lived in Tucson, Arizona. Visit her website at www.dorothyjanemills.com.
