The auction for baseball’s seminal baseball artifact, the “Laws of Base Ball” authored by Doc Adams now enters the home stretch. There always seems to be a lot of excitement when you near the finish line.
Less than 24 hours remain in the auction and the bidding stands at $417,733.
“Adams’s hand in the sport’s early rule-making is not a revelation; instead, it is the physical record of his central role memorialized in the three surviving pages of his document.”
This compelling artifact surely establishes that Daniel Lucius ‘Doc’ Adams is unequivocally a key Founding Father of baseball and deserves to be enshrined in the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Coming up merely 2 votes short of election in the balloting conducted last December, it would seem that this evidence, written in Doc’s own hand, should convince ALL of the members of the Pre-integration Era Committee to be re-convened next in December of 2018, to finally acknowledge Doc’s place in baseball history.
