Classic E-books on Baseball, Basketball, and Baseball
The American version of football (soccer/rugby) was popular at colleges but not so for those who turned pro. Herein is how the game formed, the game's early rules, a list of offensive schemes (single wing, T-Formation, etc.) and early founders of the game - many of whom were against professional football (aka post-graduate football). Think this game is violent now? Why was the field called a 'grid iron?' What is more: the jaw-dropping on-field carnage in the early 1900s led a sitting US president to threaten banning the sport unless several safety rules were in place. Can you name him?
