This thesis deals with professional baseball in the city of Omaha from the day of its inception in 1879, until the "demise" of the sport in Omaha in 1962. The reason for the study is two-fold in scope. Nothing has been written in the field of professional baseball in Omaha, and many people do not realize the colorful history of Omaha in professional baseball. Because of the above reasons this undertaking was commenced.
