The Early Years

Harold Seymour and Dorothy Seymour Mills

These two critically-acclaimed volumes mark the beginning of a monumental multi-volume study of baseball by the man whom Sports Illustrated has called "the Edward Gibbon of baseball history." Taken together, they recount the story of the origins and development of baseball from a child's game into a highly organized business and social institution.
