about

Late Innings: A Documentary History of Baseball, 1945–1972 is the third volume in Dean A. Sullivan's successful series on the vibrant history of baseball. Through 114 contemporary documents, Late Innings examines everything from Jackie Robinson's ground-breaking assault on the color barrier to Roger Maris's run on the home run record to the first stirrings of labor-management unrest in the 1970s. Late Innings also looks at exciting on-field activities, the antitrust controversy, issues of expansion, the effect of television on the game, and several other points of interest swirling around baseball in postwar America.
Dean A. Sullivan is the editor of Early Innings: A Documentary History of Baseball, 1825–1908 and Middle Innings: A Documentary History of Baseball, 1900–1948, both available in Bison Books editions.

"Sullivan, editor of Early Innings, which cover 1825-1900 and 1900-1948 respectively, does a fine job of gathering representative pieces that show baseball as a work in progress, ever-growing, ever-changing."—bookreporter.com
