But their business model of developing talent then selling it off hardly makes the fans happy. Readers will discover an object lesson on how not to run a team.

No better illustration is the ongoing search for a shortstop. The team lacks a shortstop able to play in the fast company of the National League. Their first choice is a career minor league second baseman.

Next they try a celebrated collegian who played behind the bat, not at short. Then a pitcher is sent in to try his hand followed by a veteran well past his prime. The team has talent- young players like Gene DeMontreville and Al Selbach will soon make their mark. Veteran players like Bill Joyce and Jim McGuire are among the best at their positions. Sadly there is just not enough talent to make a difference.This is the chronological description of the 1895 season- every game is covered along with events in the game and nation. Along the way you’ll read about the trouble with the umpires, a horse loose on the field and many other oddities.“Baseball in the District,” is the title we have assigned to our project to document the early history of baseball in Washington DC.

This book documents the 1895 season. This book like others in the series is written in chronological narrative, every game is covered. Local papers and sporting publications are used. This is how the players were viewed in their own time. Information about players the reader may not be aware of is referenced. Historical events are presented as they happened.Karen and I have been avid baseball fans for many years and enjoy traveling the country taking in ball games at all levels.
