The Beer and Whisky League: The Illustrated History of the American Association-- Baseball's Renegade Major League

Front Cover
Lyons & Burford, 1994 - Sports & Recreation - 260 pages
Although the American Association lasted only a decade, from 1882 to 1891, it featured some of the game's great pennant races and most notable players, and introduced innovations that its more established and powerful rival, the National League, made standard practice in time. Writer David Nemec and photographer Mark Rucker have put together a book that vividly tells the Association's story and sets a new standard for books on baseball in the 19th century.
