 The Baseball Chronology | BaseballLibrary.com
From the first recorded game in 1845, through the establishment of professional teams in the 1860s and leagues in the 1870s, the 19th century was baseball's formative period in which the basic rules and structures of the game gradually assumed the form we know today.
Runs were scarce during the first two decades of 20th-century baseball as pitchers like Cy Young, Christy Mathewson and Walter Johnson dominated the action.
In addition, baseball between the wars witnessed the advent of several trends that have stayed with us to the current day, including specialized relief pitching, minor-league farm systems, night games and radio broadcasts.

 The Highlander
The Catholic mass is a sacrifice recalling the sacrifice of Christ so a cathedral laid out in the shape of a cross is a perfect structure for a mass.
Inside a cathedral it's clear that there's enough height for a major-league pop-up and you could drive a baseball a pretty good distance lengthwise, but there would be no room for a left and right field.
So in my travels I found no space in cathedrals for a baseball field but at least I discovered that their basic form is related generally to the baseball diamond.

 Recreating Baseball History: 1901 to Present Day - OOTP Developments Forums
Baseball was filled with politics in the early years, and I'll have my recreation of baseball history reinact many major moments from real life (ie: Nap Lajoie being forced to move to Cleveland in 1902 in order to keep him away from the National League).
One of the biggest political scandals in baseball history culminated in the decision to shift the contract of star Athletics infielder Nap Lajoie to Cleveland.
That sort of aggressiveness appealed to the new American League, and in 1901, when the upstart circuit was trying to establish itself as a legitimate major league by raiding the N.L. of its best players, Lajoie was one of the first they pursued.

Despite the fragmented nature of the Black game in the 19th century, his book offers a coherent narrative from, as he terms it, “a perspective that is closer to business and economic history.” That’s probably the only way such a history could be written.
By focusing on the entrepreneurs who improvised methods to make Black baseball a profitable entertainment similar to the White game, Lomax is able to utilize a broader cultural approach that sheds light on the experience of Black baseball that a biographical and statistical perspective never could.
Even the bibliography is a document of value; the scope of Lomax’s study is so unique among baseball histories that his sources should provide a crucial starting point for anyone wishing to expand upon his work.
