A baseball story of dubious scorekeeping and statistical systems, of performances and personalities in conflict, of accurate results revealed seventy years too late, and of a contest settled not by play on the field but by human foibles.
Nonfiction/Biography
The exciting life and times of one of baseball's greatest second basemen while a key member of powerful Philadelphia Athletics and controversial Chicago White Sox teams from 1906-1930 and as an executive with the Boston Red Sox from 1933-1951.
The story of Hall-of-Famer George Sisler, Ty Cobb’s “nearest thing to the perfect ballplayer.”
