I LOVE early era baseball stuff.
My grandfather (would would have been 100 this year) was a huge fan who happened to be frieds with a couple of pretty fair players in their day, Jimmie Foxx and Lefty Grove of the Philadelphia Athletics. He constantly pushed me to appreciate the difference in the era's and styles of the game.
And of course,when I take my school kids to Gettysburg and we are doing day 1, I always show them Doubleday's statue, almost directly across from the spot where JFR was shot, and explain that the "Father of Baseball" was there also.
