        Bill,

        What about the book written by Graham in 1944-5? I have read that is an excellent book.

        McGraw really intrigues me.

        Thanks.

          I have that one too, and haven't read that one either. Here is a post I made where I list my biographies.

            Barry Bonds

            There has been a quite a few good books about Barry Bonds and the whole steroid situation recently. Adds a lot of insight into the who and why or Barry.

            Love Me, Hate Me: Barry Bonds and the Making of an Antihero (Jeff Pearlman)

            Game of Shadows: Barry Bonds, BALCO, and the Steroids Scandal that Rocked Professional Sports (Mark Fainaru-Wada and Lance Williams)

            This Gracious Season: Barry Bonds & The Greatest Year in Baseball (Josh Suchon and Bob Nightengale)


            Almost makes you feel sorry for him.

                        Heartbreakers

                        I enjoyed the images posted by 9RoyHobbsRF and thought I would try a few from my library. If folks are interested in these please say so; I have many older and interesting books I can scan and post. Some are quite old and some are just interesting.

                        Heartbreakers - John Kuenster - 2001. You gotta love the picture of Branca after the Thomson home run.

                            My Life and Baseball - Felipe Alou - 1967.

                            Hmmmm! Felipe looked a lot younger before he was a manager.

                                You Can't Steal First Base

                                You Can't Steal First Base - Jimmie Dykes & Charles Dexter - 1967.

                                Not exactly true from a historical perspective. It seems to me Babe Herman once stole 1st base when he was on 2nd. Something about distracting the catcher and allowing the man on 3rd to score. I think it's illegal now.
