The Arizona Territory is known for saloons, gun fights, outlaws and
shady women. But the history of baseball in Arizona is long
forgotten. The national pastime came first to the territory's many
military posts and soon gained a foothold in early towns such as
Tombstone, Tucson, Prescott and Phoenix. Gaining popularity in the
1880s, the game spread through the territory with the help of
railroads. Soon company nines were competing against town clubs. In
the early 1900s, the major leagues made several tours through
Arizona. This book takes a first-ever look into Arizona's rich
baseball history, with never before seen photographs of the
earliest baseball clubs and games.
