This is the way the game was meant to be played, hometown teams avidly supported by the local citizenry, competing for regional championships. Baseball in Dutchess County chronicles the one hundred years of local baseball from 1859 to 1959.

Joseph Poillucci, a native and life-long resident of Dutchess County, is the leading expert on the history of baseball in the county. He recreates the romantic early days of the game, when players left their day jobs to travel up and down the Hudson River by steamboat, accompanied by promoters and managers to compete in the fierce community rivalries that fired passion in their fans.
