The Summer of Beer & Whiskey: How Brewers, Barkeeps, Rowdies, Immigrants & a Wild Pennant Fight Made Baseball America's Game

Monday, May 13, 2013 7:00p
Weaver Memorial Library East Providence, RI

Edward Achorn’s new book captures the wondrous and hilarious world of old-time professional baseball, writing of the early days of immigrants and the American Association that turned baseball into a nationally beloved sport. Known as “the Beer and Whiskey Circuit, the American Association welcomed the masses to the ballparks with 25-cent admissions, Sunday games, and lots of alcohol. “A thoroughly enjoyable re-creation of the gusto, guts, glory and grime of the game’s early days!" (Kirkus)
