Thomas Gilbert has delivered an interesting topic for us to consider called, “ How Baseball Happened: Outrageous Lies Exposed! the True Story Revealed Parts of the book don’t have new information as he describes the origins of baseball players that very few fans have ever heard about from the mid-1800s.

None of these were close to getting a Cooperstown Hall of Fame plague but their place in history has helped put the game of baseball where it is today. Gilbert is fine with letting his readers know they have been duped when discussing baseball history. names like Doubleday and Cartwright were not the inventors of the game. He tells how the first game wasn’t played in Hoboken, New Jersey but was in Brooklyn. 

Baseball fans should have this on their bookshelf with a publish date of September 15, 2020.
