Using an overly verbose and showy prose, A People's History of Baseball drags the reader through the class struggles, racism, economics, politics, and litigation that surrounded baseball for the past 150+ years. Rather than revealing an engaging new set of facts surrounding the underbelly of baseball, the author spends a great deal of time conjecturing on the motives surrounding baseball's biggest moments. A somewhat valuable exercise, perhaps, but does little to "[probe] the less well-known but no less meaningful other side of baseball." I bought the book looking for a behind-the-scenes look at the less reputable side of pro ball. Instead I got all the same stories told over again with all of the fun squeezed out of them.
