Shocker! Discovering a Silent Hero of Baseball's Golden Age
Silent Hero of Baseball's Golden Age weaves a dozen baseball people into the story, including Hall-of-Famers Brown first baseman George Sisler, Yankee manager Miller Huggins, and spitball pitchers Ed Walsh, Burleigh Grimes, and Stan Coveleski. The book captures their personalities and bonds of friendship, as well as their love of the game. It follows them from rising stars to veterans on the way down. Like Urban Shocker, most of these men were household names in the Teens or 1920's, but are merely dim memories now. Like Urban, they too have stories worth telling.
