St. Louis is considered a terrific baseball town.

In his latest edition of Reading Baseball, Pete Peterson tells us that wasn’t the case at the turn of the 20th century, but the tide turned 100 years ago.

Reading Baseball is a series of essays and commentaries by Richard “Pete” Peterson, the author of Growing Up With Clemente and editor of The St. Louis Baseball Reader.
