The short bios of these Deadball Era players each have a couple of interesting things about the men who played this great game about 100 years ago. Some of the tales are sad, some are funny. To me, it noteworthy to discover how few truly big men played the game and how the Irish took to this sport.
After reading about all of the bios by now, I have a better picture of Deadball Era baseball and find that time period utterly fascinating. The same, of course, goes for the companion book detailing players from the American League. Both of these books are essential for anyone who loves baseball history.
