The year is 1897. The place: Boston, Massachusetts. Star short stop Herman Long has just been beaten and left for dead, alone and in the locker room of the Boston Beaneaters National League base ball team. But, whodunit and why?
It's up to ne'er-do-well Will Beaman, who stumbles across Long while trying desperately to secure a front office position with the ball club, to solve the case. Filled with romance, numerous red herrings, exciting game reportage, and shady characters, Best Bet in Beantown dives deeply into the sordid world of 19th century baseball.>
