Description
For every major leaguer, there are dozens more talented players who for one reason or another missed their chance at lasting glory. Scouring the annals of not only the Majors but also the Minor, Negro, and Barnstorming leagues, Gary Cieradkowski has unearthed the stories of such individuals as Pete Reiser, a rambunctious outfielder whose promising career was ended by a head injury; reliever-turned-murderer "Blackie" Schwamb; and Ray White, whose 1934 beaning of Lou Gehrig with a pitch may have contributed to the "Iron Horse's" fatal illness. Here too are tales from the early careers of such greats as Babe Ruth, Willie Mays, Ted Williams, and Satchel Paige. For each player, Cieradkowski crafted his own stylish color illustration, in the tradition of vintage baseball cards.
