Albert Spalding’s World Tour-1888/1889

Kevin, over at the DMB Historic World Series Replay has a look at Albert Spalding’s World Tour-1888/1889

He's got some pictures, line-ups, results, some interesting facts and trivia, and some additional links.

Straight from Kevin:

This is one of the reasons I wanted to do this blog. This World Tour has been all but forgotten by today’s fan. It’s stuff like this that sets baseball apart from any other sport. It’s history, is really a part of American history.
I still haven't read the book, but I need to get it. Not everyone cares about the history of baseball or the international game. But if you are, it's a must-read.
