This is the biography of Bud Fowler (ne John Jackson), the first African American to play in organized baseball, and the longest tenured at the time that the color line was drawn. In addition to his professional playing career, which lasted more than 25 years, Fowler was a scout, organizer, owner, and promoter of touring black baseball clubs--including the legendary Page Fence Giants--in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Emphasizing the social and cultural contexts for Fowler's accomplishments on and off the baseball diamond, and his prominence within the history and development of the national pastime, the text builds a convincing case for Fowler as one of the great pioneering figures of the early game.

Throughout the years, scores of players have polished their skills in Broome County with the Crickets, the Bingos, the Triplets, and today's Binghamton Mets. Professional baseball began in the area in 1871, and the highlights came quickly. The early stars included an eighteen-year-old future Hall of Famer, Montgomery Ward; the first known black player in professional baseball, Bud Fowler; and Hall of Famer "Wee Willie" Keeler. By 1923, the Triplets were playing in Johnson City. They soon became affiliated with the Yankees and sent that franchise some of their best players, including Whitey Ford, Vic Raschi, and Thurman Munson. From 1969 to 1991, professional baseball disappeared from Broome County, but it was back with a bang in 1992, featuring a new stadium and a firm relationship with the New York Mets. Baseball in Broome County recounts this great story with more than one hundred eighty photographs and engaging text.

Since 1900, the lure of roaring crowds, bitter rivalries, and team spirit has occupied a significant place in the social history of Lincolnton and Lincoln County. This tradition began at Horseshoe Park, where local baseball teams played against opponents from Lenoir, Morganton, and the mountains of North Carolina. Over time, leagues grew in popularity and teams were added from Boger and Crawford and Glenn Mills, as well as high school teams. Teams such as the Lincolnton Cardinals and Lincolnton Red Sox left lasting legacies. The Lincoln County Sports Hall of Fame ensures that the athletes of a bygone era will always be remembered and they can continue to serve as inspiration for future generations of sports players and fans.

The Broome Dusters played their first home game at the Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena on October 18, 1973. The game was symbolic of what was to come. Down 6-0, they fought back only to lose 8-7. Their fan support followed a similar pattern, lukewarm at first and then ferociously loyal. Hockey became a passion for local fans and has continued to be so to this day. When the Dusters disbanded, they were followed by the Whalers, Rangers, B.C. Iceman, and the Senators. Hockey in Broome County tells this fascinating story with more than 200 photographs and engaging text. Relive the heroics of the Dusters' Rod Bloomfield, "the little guy that everyone picked on." Then skip ahead to the crowd-pleasing toughness of the Whalers' Randy MacGregor and the more recent brilliance of the Senators' Jason Spezza.
