This work traces the history of New Mexican baseball to the days of Billy the Kid and Geronimo. The author describes a kind of feudal society in those early years of the Wild West, where soldiers, miners, criminals, homesteaders, farmers, and the still unsubdued Apaches populated the land, but where baseball existed and was played by a strange amalgamation of Americans.
