About the Author
J. Thomas Hetrick cut his teeth on the Washington Senators' teams of the late 1960s and through 1971, when the club moved to the wilds of Texas. A serious fan of "bad baseball" teams, Hetrick celebrates those nonentities through his writing and research. He's also the author of "Chris Von der Ahe and the St. Louis Browns" from Scarecrow Press. That book was a finalist for the Seymour Medal, given the best book of baseball history or biography in a year.
