    Captivating read about the early history of baseball

    Long before baseball became America’s national pastime, Europeans of all ages, genders, and classes were playing a similar game with varying names. In his book Pastime Lost: The Humble, Original, and Now Completely Forgotten Game of English Baseball (Nebraska UP), David Block looks for the roots of baseball mainly in England. Our reviewer Isak Lidström is highly appreciative of Block’s efforts, but calls for a wider perspective.
