Meet The American Who… Doc Adams
Doc Adams was profiled yesterday in Fox News Digital’s “Meet the American Who” series by Kerry Byrne. The article is well done and should help increase awareness of Doc Adams and his contributions to the game. The article captures Doc’s love of the game and the role he played in baseball’s development and growth during the National Pastime’s nascent period.
The article can be read here.
Chadwick probably said it best. Baseball did not have a single “father”, rather, several “founding fathers”. Therefore, Doc Adams, is better characterized as a baseball pioneer and “a” founding father of the National Pastime.
For clarity, the “everything” that should be more appropriately credited to Doc Adams are the 9 players per side, 9 innings, and 90 feet between bases (re: the ‘Laws of Base Ball’).
