Carroll County, Maryland Baseball, Men’s Amateur & Semi-Pro Baseball, 1850-1999 - Daniel D. Hartzler. These pages preserve a unique aspect of Carroll County, Maryland, history and serve as a reminder of why baseball has remained America's national pastime. Readers will find a sense of community here, along with a sense of time and place. "As the years fly by, you'll ride with the town teams to games, bounce in the rumble seats of model T's, and click along the rails of the Western Maryland Railroad. You'll visit the little villages where baseball was a catalyst, the weekly escape for the local farmers and citizenry. And, you'll meet the players, live the history, experience game-play from Harney and Sam's Creek to Tannery and Taylorsville."

The towns/teams covered in these detailed accounts include: Berrett, Blue Ridge College, Company H (Maryland National Guard), Congoleum, Dennings, Detour, Dorsey's Crossroad, Eldersburg, Frizzellburg, Gamber, Hampstead, Harney, Leppo Bluesox, Linwood, Manchester, Middleburg, Mount Airy, New Windsor, Patapsco, Reese, Sam's Creek, Sandymount, Silver Run, Snydersburg, Springfield, Sykesville, Taneytown, Tannery, Taylorsville, Union Bridge, Union Bridge Blacksox, Uniontown, Unionville, Wakefield, Western Maryland College, Westminster, and Woodbine. Umpires and the Carroll County Old Timers Baseball Association are also covered. First-person recollections that allow readers to hear the voices of the players, an abundance of vintage photographs, excerpts from newspaper articles, and an every name index enhance the text. (2005), 2009, 8˝x11, paper, index, 202 pp.
