    There is no full length biography of Charleston that I know of. Too bad, a player of that caliber deserves one (certainly at the expense of those 20 or so written about Joe DiMaggio every year).

    PS for books on Charleston you can always check amazon.com or better yet, SABR.
    Pitching excellence?

    It doesn't look like anyone has done an individual book-length work on Oscar. His fiery personality would make him an intriguing subject, but I wouldn't be surprised if documents are scarce.
