About the Author

William E. Akin is professor of history emeritus of Ursinus College in Collegeville, Pennsylvania, USA. His articles have appeared in The Historian, American Quarterly and American Historical Review. He lives in Collegeville, USA.


"Akin has produced the most thorough study on the Mid-Atlantic League and set a standard for future examinations for other, mostly forgotten lower minor leagues"--Journal of Sport History; "Emerging from the coal fields and mill towns of Pennsylvania and West Virginia, the Middle Atlantic League waged a spirited 27-year battle for survival in baseball's low minors. At its peak, the MAL ran a minor league of its own and encompassed cities with a total population of more than 1 million. Akin presents a lively and enlightening history, replete with resourceful executives, the (possibly) first female baseball columnist and cameo appearances by notable figures from Chief Bender to Joe Medwick to Whitey Ford and MAL home run king Walter Alston."--Mike Lackey, Larry Ritter Award-winning author of Spitballing: The Baseball Days of Long Bob Ewing.
