    The book is the day by day story of the 1954 Indians, whose .721 winning percentage is still the highest in American League history.

  • "Commy"by G. W. Axelson; Marty McGee; Gary Mitchem

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2003; US$ 33.00

    This biography of Charles "Commy" Comiskey is one of the earliest and most important--and, up to now, one of the hardest for baseball researchers to get their hands on--in the baseball canon. Comiskey spent half a century in the big leagues as a successful player-manager and owner, his clubs winning nine pennants along the way. But the dark... more...

  • "Ee-Yah"by Jack Smiles

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2005; US$ 32.00

    Baseball player and manager Hugh Ambrose Jennings was the kind of colorful personality who inspired nicknames. Sportswriters called him "Ee-yah" for his famous coaching box cry and "Hustling Hughey" for his style of play. But to the nearly 100 other men from northeast Pennsylvania who followed Jennings from the coal mines to the... more...

  • "Had 'Em All the Way"by Thad Mumau

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2015; US$ 29.95

    The 1960 Pittsburgh Pirates were a special team--team being the operative word. There were no superstars, although Roberto Clemente would become one, and nobody had a record season. The Battling Bucs frequently came from behind to win late in the game, with Pirates broadcaster Bob Prince signing off, "We had 'em all the way." Pittsburgh... more...

With a foreword by Branch Barrett Rickey (grandson of Branch Rickey), this book fills the void in Dodgers scholarship, exploring their impact on popular culture and revealing lesser-known details of the team's history. Personal stories are included... more...

Only days out of college in 1936, Nicholson went straight to the majors, putting in a brief appearance for Connie Mack's Philadelphia A's before he was optioned to the minors. His contract eventually purchased... more...

  • "Tearin' Up the Pea Patch"by Andrew Paul Mele

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2015; US$ 29.95
