At The Old Ballgame

by Jeff Silverman, At The Old Ballgame Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download At The Old Ballgame books, Before multimillion-dollar salaries, luxury boxes, and player strikes became synonymous with professional sports, there existed the belief in playing simply "for the love of the game." Nothing captures that spirit better than these twenty classic pieces about America's favorite pastime. Collected here are the writings of Ring Lardner, Zane Grey, the Giants' immortal Christy Mathewson, Grover Cleveland Alexander, Finley Peter Dunne (who for a time was America's most popular humorist after Mark Twain), Burt Standish (creator of that all-American hero, Frank Merriwell), and many more. Baseball's golden era may have long since passed, but in the pages of CLASSIC BASEBALL STORIES, you can still sit in the bleachers for a nickel. Relive the golden era of baseball with timeless classics from: Albert G. Spalding Henry Chadwick Ernest Lawrence Thayer Grantland Rice Sol White Brig. Gen. Fredrick Funston Zane Grey Candy Cummings Alfred H. Spink Burt L. Standish Lester Chadwick Finley Peter Dunne Christy Mathewson Damon Runyon Grover Cleveland Alexander Gerald Beaumont Ring Lardner Hugh Fullerton Ralph D. Blanpied Charles E. Van Loan P.G.

The Old Ball Game

by Frank Deford, The Old Ball Game Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Old Ball Game books, In The Old Ball Game, Frank Deford, NPR sports commentator and Sports Illustrated journalist retells the story of an unusual friendship between two towering figures in baseball history. At the turn of the twentieth century, Christy Mathewson was one of baseball's first superstars. Over six feet tall, clean cut, and college educated, he didn't pitch on the Sabbath and rarely spoke an ill word about anyone. He also had one of the most devastating arms in all of baseball. New York Giants manager John McGraw, by contrast, was ferocious. The pugnacious tough guy was already a star infielder who, with the Baltimore Orioles, helped develop a new, scrappy style of baseball, with plays like the hit-and-run, the Baltimore chop, and the squeeze play. When McGraw joined the Giants in 1902, the Giants were coming off their worst season ever. Yet within three years, Mathewson clinched New York City's first World Series for McGraw's team by throwing three straight shutouts in only six days, an incredible feat that is invariably called the greatest World Series performance ever. Because of their wonderful odd-couple association, baseball had its first superstar, the Giants ascended into legend, and baseball as a national pastime bloomed.

Now he is an ex-con who has come up with an ingenious plan to rob the Redvale Phillies cash office, and if the plan requires some blood to be spilled, that is fine with Prado as long as it is not his own. The only problem is the double-crosses start flying around like baseballs in this story of greed, brutality and murder that will keep you turning the page until you reach the end of this gripping caper.

A Legend For The Legendary

by James A. Vlasich, A Legend For The Legendary Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download A Legend For The Legendary books, The origins of baseball are controversial. James A. Vlasich discusses the debates between two men intimately involved in nineteenth-century baseball, Henry Chadwick and Albert G. Spalding. Abner Graves of the Mills Commission claimed that Abner Doubleday had invented the game and he had done it in Cooperstown, New York. This claim was scrutinized at the time but the myth became etched into baseball history. Through the years, however, some critics have questioned the Mills Commission report. The problem is that the Baseball Hall of Fame is built on this shaky foundation. The lack of diligence on the part of Spalding’s self-appointed committee has led to a credibility gap for the baseball shrine that continues a half century after its dedication. Indeed, the story of the building of the Baseball Hall of Fame is filled with intrigue worthy of a political thriller.

People are amused when he rails against (unwanted) Western encroachments and the (haphazard) industrialization of the island. Yet when he trades his life for a hostage (the woman he loves), during an aborted robbery, and then induces his captor to give himself up, the island begins to believe he is somehow graced. He later saves the people from a curse that has hung over the island for many years. He appears even to cure a woman of her illness. His untimely death is turned into a miracle. His hand appears to rise in benediction, as if blessing the island - and an industrial project that he once opposed.
