    The best baseball bio is Ty Cobb by Charles Alexander.

    Some other good ones:

    Jackie Robinson by Arnold Rampersad
    Babe Ruth: Launching the Legend By Jim Reisler
    Luckiest Man by Jonathan Eig
    Judge and Jury (have to look up authors name)
    Hal Chase by Martin Kohout
    John McGraw by Charles Alexander

    I have to look up some titles for books about Dizzy Dean, John Montgomery Ward, Ban Johnson, Walter Johnson, Bob Feller, John McGraw & Casey Stengel and Mel Allen.
