About the Author:

J. Thomas Hetrick has written two books about 19th century baseball—MISFITS! Baseball’s Worst Ever Team and Chris Von der Ahe and the St. Louis Browns. The latter book was a Finalist for the Seymour Medal, a peer award given for the best book of baseball history or biography in a year. A member of the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR), Hetrick has indexed Ball Four (Jim Bouton), Minnesotans in Baseball, and Baseball in 1889: Players vs. Owners (Daniel Pearson) for the organization. On occasion, he’s presented his research at chapter and SABR National meetings in St. Louis, Boston, and Pittsburgh. In 2001, Hetrick spoke at the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York. Hetrick also owns and operates Pocol Press, a small press publisher located in Northern Virginia. He can be reached at info@pocolpress.com.

Review:

"...they played under more aliases than John Gotti -- Misfits, Outcasts, Leftovers, and those are only the polite ones." -- The News, Southbridge, Massachusetts

"Hetrick deserves a standing ovation for this meticulous research." -- The Cooperstown Review

"The team that does strange things." -- Cleveland Plain Dealer, 1899
