BA Book Reviews: “Catcher”

James Bailey -

Part daredevil, part cowboy, early catchers made themselves indispensable with their reckless disregard for their own safety. The growth of the position significantly impacted the evolution of baseball in the latter part of the 19th century. Peter Morris details this progression in "Catcher: How the Man behind the Plate Became an American Folk Hero".
