Indoor Baseball

There has been a bit of discussion about indoor baseball on the SABR listserve as of late.  I thought I'd do a bit of research.  The following articles focus mainly on the origins of that game, with a few others highlighting leagues and the evolution of the game.  Bonus points for The Florida Star writer using the term "Jack Frostican".  These articles are from the Library of Congress's site, Chronicling America.  There are many other articles available through Google News.
