9780912517414: True Stories: Baseball (True Stories Series (Bluewood Books))

Each of the more than 65 stories in True Stories of Baseball's Hall of Famers will fascinate, excite, and surprise even the most avid of baseball fans. Here are stories about dozens of the most famous players ever to step on a baseball diamond, as well as some of the "forgotten greats" whose on-the-field exploits were nevertheless memorable enough to warrant inclusion into the most exclusive "club" in all of sport.

Many of the tales concern game heroics of the great players from the Golden Era of Babe Ruth and Walter Johnson, to the war-time stars such as Ted Williams and Joe DiMaggio, down through the modern era of Micky Mantle and Willie Mays, right up through the recent years of Reggie Jackson and Nolan Ryan. This book also includes some of the lesser-remembered greats -- such as Rube Waddell and Lefty Gomez; men who earned the respect of their peers, managers, sports writers and fans.

Readers will be inspired in re-living Joe DiMaggio's miraculous 1949 comeback after a career threatening injury, and surprised to learn about a number of players from the old Negro Leagues - who played their careers in relative obscurity, yet whose accomplishments on the field were so outstanding that Major League baseball gave them the recognition they deserved by including them in the Hall of Fame.

True Stories of Baseball's Hall of Famers is written in a clear and engaging manner, bringing the exploits of these legendary athletes to life once more. Also included are each players' lifetime statistics. The book is also filled with over 25 B&W historic photographs and illustrations making for an enjoyable reading experience.
