There’s a real place called Peace River, and you better believe it was the home to multiple beautiful baseball fields; a player in 1906 suggested batters should get to choose between running to first or third base; a writer in 2019 suggests fixing the tainted 2017 World Series with hook-a-duck or welly wanging.
