History of baseball in the United States. Redirected from History of Major League Baseball). The history of baseball in the United States can be traced to the 19th century, when amateurs played a baseball-like game by their own informal rules using homemade equipment. The popularity of the sport inspired the semi-professional national baseball clubs in the 1860s.

This book is a record of the men and events, team by team, during Major League Baseball's integration. It focuses especially on the owners, executives and managers who were the heroes, villains or spectators of integration, and it sheds new light on the unheralded champions of integration and on those whose culpability has so far been overlooked. Individual chapters cover each of baseball's integration-era teams, and a final chapter covers expansion teams of the 1960s. Each team's responsible individuals are examined, its acquisition, deployment and treatment of black players documented, and its integration strategy's effect on team performance analyzed. Appendices provide populations of integration-era Major League cities, first black players by team, first black players in various minor leagues, rosters of black players by team, a timeline of black player milestones, and a list of black All-Star selections through 1969.

It was gratifying to actually find a book covering the Jackie Robinson era that chronicled the step by step entry of blacks into major league baseball. I liked the book because it explained the machinations of each team and how they wrestled with the notion of integrating their individual team. I give it four stars because it appears to be very well researched and it is well written. I grew up in that era and it was great to see how my people finally entered and dominated the spor individually in the 50's and 60's. I highly recommend the book and I bought a number of copies to share with my friends.

Rick Swaine has compiled the most complete record of the integration of baseball beyond the compelling story of Jackie Robinson and Branch Rickey. This book sheds light on those men who helped or hindered the integration process. His time-line makes for easy reference and his writting is crisp and filled with the kind of detail that serves to complete the story of this significant chapter in American History and Baseball History. This book is a must for anyone interested in the more complete record of the agonizingly slow process of full assimilation for black ball players.
