Doc Adams Base Ball is celebrating it’s 7th birthday!
This has been nearly a decade’s long adventure. A lot has happened just since this site was established seven years ago. An engaging and memorable interview of Doc Adams (Marjorie Adams) at SABR’s 6th Annual Frederick Ivor-Campbell 19th Century Base Ball Conference in Cooperstown…. Selection of Doc Adams as SABR’s 2014 Overlooked 19th Century Baseball Legend…the longest running Vintage Base Ball festival renamed the Doc Adams Old Time Base Ball Festival…Doc being named on the 2016 Pre-integration Era Committee Ballot… and sadly, coming up 2 votes shy of election…the re-discovery of the ‘Laws of Base Ball‘ authored by Doc in 1857 which baseball historian John Thorn refers to as baseball’s Magna Carta and sold at auction for $3.26M…….Marjorie Adams presented, and received an honorable mention for her research presentation “Doc Adams: A Founding Father of Baseball” at the SABR 47 National Conference in New York City…signs honoring Doc Adams are dedicated in his hometown of Mont Vernon… the Doc Adams Invitational is held in Doc Adams’ hometown…Doc Adams’ “Laws of Base Ball” are exhibited at the Library of Congress
This is a big year for Doc Adams. It’s been 5 years since he was on the ballot (missing by 2 votes), Hopefully, this year will be different.
Next year we hope to add Doc Adams being named on the Early Baseball Era Committee Ballot, being elected and inducted into to the National Baseball Hall of Fame.
