An article on the “Origin of Base Ball” appeared on May 4, 1905, in the Long Beach Evening Tribune. The right questions were being asked back then; however, it wasn’t as easy to find the answers. Had the information available today been accessible, Doc Adams would probably already be in the Hall of Fame. It’s not too late. Hopefully this will be rectified with Doc Adams’ election at the 2021 Winter Meetings and induction as a member of the Class of 2022.
