                                                            Chase was one of the best first basemen ever to play the game of baseball. He made both the routine look spectacular and the astonishing look easy. But he will never have a plaque in Cooperstown. Chase was the biggest crook in baseball history. Repeatedly accused of throwing games, bribing players, betting against his own team, and other nefarious acts, he always managed to get off the hook somehow. His major league career lasted from 1905 to 1919 but by the mid-30s, he was a destitute...

                                                              This definitive biography of Ted Williams provides a balanced portrait of the man, the ballplayer, the war veteran and the hitter. This last side of Williams - the man in the batter's box, the last player to hit .400, the Splendid Splinter - is the most widely and fondly remembered. But Linn also gets beneath the varnish on the bat, examining the Williams known by teammates and sportswriters as difficult and moody. Finally, this is an assessment of a ballplayer who was frequently ignored by...

                                                                Who is Pete Rose? Is he Charlie Hustle, the all-American kid who never grew up, who pushed and stretched himself to get the most out of his limited talent, who would do anything in his power to win and be a part of the game he loved? Or is he the bloated ex-athlete who broke baseball's one absolute taboo and who was willing to drag down the whole structure of the sport to save himself? In January 2004, Pete Rose publicly admitted to betting on baseball and began his controversial campaign...

This is a collection of mostly humorous anecdotes from the baseball beat, but the standout chapter is a serious examination of the element of fear in the game. He interviewed many players who have sustained serious injuries when hit by a ball. Some recover physically but not mentally. Others overcome the fear but can't compensate for permanently altered vision. He also includes a chapter on baseball's unsung heroes: the scouts, underpaid...

When Jose Canseco burst into the Major Leagues in the 1980s, he changed the sport - in more ways than one. No player before him possessed his mixture of speed and power, which allowed him to become the first man in history to belt more than forty home runs and swipe more than forty bases in the same season. He won Rookie of the Year, Most Valuable Player, and a World Series ring. Canseco shattered the...
