On Doc Adams Being Named To The 2016 Pre-integration Era Ballot
From SABR member John Thorn at Our Game on November 14, 2012:
Twenty years ago I “rediscovered” Daniel Lucius “Doc” Adams with the publication in the debut issue of the Elysian Fields Quarterly of my article “The True Father of Baseball.” I expanded upon this offering several times over the ensuing years, notably in Total Baseball; it appears in its latest incarnation at the SABR Biproject site: Doc Adams Bio. I also wrote about Adams and his key innovations–setting the basepaths at ninety feet and inventing the position of shortstop–in my most recent book, Baseball in the Garden of Eden: The Secret History of the Early Game. I have spoken about Adams at the Smithsonian.
