This chronologically organised book is the first to provide comprehensive coverage of forfeits (Part I) and successful protests (Part II) of major league baseball games, educating the reader on the rules and prevailing styles of play at the time that each of the games was played. In addition to the date, location, and source information, authors Nemec and Miklich provide capsule biographies of many of the principal characters involved (including, for instance, the obscure one-game umpire who perpetrated the first forfeited game in major league history in 1871). The last forfeited or successfully protested game having occurred nearly twenty years ago, the book will almost certainly remain the definitive work on the subject.
