A reporter is mysteriously transported back to 1869 and joins the Cincinnati Red Stockings on the first national baseball tour. Compelling story with historical insights into the first years of the fledgling national pastime. If you like baseball you'll enjoy this book. If you don't like baseball you will still enjoy this book, it is kind of about baeball like the movie "Bull Durham" was about baseball.
