Rounding The Bases In Big Sky Country
The Wild West had nothing on Montana's 1st baseball games. Fights, booze, cheating & gambling fueled our state's inaugural professional league in 1892. The turn of the century brought star-studded barnstorming tours & threats of bloodshed. Big Sky Country embraced a distinctly different version of the old ballgame, & Montana players who made their way to big league diamonds helped change the sport on AND off the field. From the Lewis & Clark expedition to Dave McNally's historic career, award-winning journalist Skylar Browning & researcher Jeremy Watterson reveal Montana's relationship with America's pastime in their outstanding read, "Montana Baseball History." I have the book "Up for grabs" tomorrow (Saturday) morning at 7:30 on Puffman Sports Trivia.
