    Ironically, I just started reading this book. I bought it last month at a Portland bookstore for $5.95.

    R.I.P. That book is great as is his book on Stengel. Unles I am mistaken Creamer is the gold standard of baseball biographers.

      Agree on both books, Creamer was a great biographer.
      They call me Mr. Baseball. Not because of my love for the game; because of all the stitches in my head.

        I remember Creamer from Ken Burns Baseball. He and Bob Costas were my favorites from that.

            This book, though less well-known than Creamer's biographies, is also an excellent read.

                If you never read "Underworld" by Don DeLillo . . . read the 1st - 20 pages. I smiled the entire time . . . It's Oct. 3, 1951 . . . It's worth the price of admission of this one chapter. I haven't gone further yet, still reading . . . but it's worth it. R.I.P. Mr. Creamer . . . I won't soon forget you.
                Some's basturds, some's ain't, thats the score.
