June Rankin lived exciting lives covering sports for papers like the New York Sunday Mercury, New York Herald, New York World, Brooklyn Daily Eagle and New York Clipper from 1870 to 1930.

Playing for amateur and semiprofessional Rockland County (N.Y.) clubs in the mid-1860s through early 1870s, the brothers developed into baseball writers and editors for a host of papers. Often working with Henry Chadwick, called the Father of Baseball, they became authorities on the sport, writing histories of clubs and players, and scoring for the early New York and Brooklyn clubs.

June went on to cover boxing as it transitioned into a gentlemens sport, football as it emerged on college campuses, and golf through the formative years of the USGA and PGA.He also wrote two baseball books. Filled with sporting details, this book sets the brothers into a period of great change in athletics.
