Baseball America: The Music
America fell in love with baseball well over a century ago. It was interrupted by the Civil War between the states. When people wanted things to get back to "normal" after the war, baseball games sprung up everywhere. Farmers, former slaves, and factory workers alike played the game.
One of my grandfathers actually did sell sodas from the back of a wagon in a number two washtub. Unfortunately, the game was on a hot Sunday afternoon in Joaquin, Texas and the powers that be at his church were appalled at the very thought. He was given the left foot of fellowship out the door. So, included is a fictional story based on that event.
Somewhere along the way, baseball music sprung up with the game. This book contains the complete sheet music to 47 of those early, fun songs - from polkas to two-steps to marches and others. The music is very much a real part of the history of American Baseball.
Baseball was then interrupted again by another war, World War I.
