Marty Payne contributed an essay to the Special Protoball Issue of Base Ball this spring:

"1858 -- Diffusion of the New York Game in Maryland."  Base Ball. 5(1):   127 - 131.

Marty continues to explore the influence of the advent of the New York Game on rural towns.  He is finding that The New York game (along with improved transportation) brought competition, and had a profound social, economic, and cultural impact on small towns that previous, less structured versions of ballplay did not.
