Eight Seasons of the Herefords: Red Dirt Baseball in Ada

By Peter G. Pierce -- $14.95 (Paperback)

Ada has a short but rich history in professional baseball. While only a handful of the hundreds of players who wore the Herefords’ flannels ever appeared in a Major League game, they left a fascinating human and social legacy and impact on Ada. Originally conceived as a chapter in a book in the Red Dirt Baseball series, information and photos from former players and their children provided enough to justify an expansion to a full book. Most of the photos in Eight Seasons of the Herefords-Red Dirt Baseball in Ada appear publicly for the first time and the vignettes on owners, managers, and players have been expanded from treatment of the Herefords in Baseball in the Cross Timbers.
