Baseball---Then and Now is at once a memoir, history lesson, and opinion piece about the Great American Pastime. The author’s only source material was his memory of past events.

Abstract:
Baseball---Then and Now combines the author’s earliest recollections of the Great American Pastime with a cogent and often humorous analysis of the game’s evolution. Written entirely from Robert Lockwood Mills’ vast memory bank, it invites the reader along nostalgic pathways of baseball history, from the familiar to the forgotten. The author recalls the earliest games he saw, involving the Chicago Cubs in 1948 and the Boston Red Sox in 1949. He helps us remember great, near-great, and not-so-great players, managers, broadcasters, sportswriters, and umpires. He discusses unresolved controversies and ends the book with a flight of fancy about baseball’s future.
