John Montgomery Ward

Ward was, along with Al Spalding, one of the first impresarios of professional baseball: a player (both pitching and playing the field), businessman, lawyer, and manager. His book, Base-Ball: How to Become a Player, With the Origin, History and Explanation of the Game, is available for free at Project Gutenberg, here: https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/19975
