Giants' manager John McGraw hung two photographs on his office wall: Christy Mathewson and Ross Youngs. Both passed away within a short time of one another causing The Little Napoleon much heartache. However, here's an anecdote not found in the book. One day shortly thereafter a man came up to him and introduced himself by saying, "Mr. McGraw, I'm Melvin Ott. Harry Williams sent me." The old make way for the new.
The historic Polo Grounds was razed in 1964 and the tablets honoring Youngs and others (I assume Mathewson and McGraw) were lost to history as was the Eddie Grant Memorial that resided in deep center field 383 feet from home plate. All in all this is a worth while biography of Ross Youngs. The text is only 136 pages long, but Ross Youngs was only 30 years old when he passed away from Bright's disease which began as a strep throat which led to a malfunctioning of the kidneys. With no antibiotics available at the time rest was the only remedy.
