About this title

Synopsis:

Buck Weaver seemed born to play the game of baseball, and he played it with unbridled passion and joy. He was the best third baseman Ty Cobb ever saw. He is still considered by most observers the best third baseman in the history of the Chicago White Sox and one of the best ever in all of baseball. Yet his career was cut short at the age of twenty-nine when, in the wake of the infamous Black Sox scandal of 1919 when players conspired to throw the World Series, he was banned from baseball for life by the newly appointed baseball commissioner Judge Kenesaw Mountain Landis.
Why was Weaver banned? What crime had he committed? And what kind of a man was George Daniel "Buck" Weaver really?
The Ginger Kid provides historians and baseball fans with the entire story of the life of Buck Weaver, from his first appearance on the ball fields of Pottstown, Pennsylvania, through his rapid though ertatic rise to the major leagues, the Black Sox scandal and trial, his ouster from the game he loved so much, and his unrelenting efforts, up to the day he died, to clear his name.
Was Weaver's fate unjust? Should he be posthumously reinstated into the good graces of baseball?
Herein lie the facts of the case. A few baseball and legal experts have already spoken out on the subject. Now you, the reader, can decide for yourself.
