Of Particular Interest To Baseball Fans Of The 1950's Nov 16, 2007
This book chronicles the best years of players who achieved one "great" season. It focuses on 1950-61. The players are: Jim Konstanty,Del Ennis,Ned Garver,Bobby Shantz,Hank Sauer,Harvey Haddix,Bob Porterfield,Mickey Vernon,Al Rosen,Dusty Rhodes,Johnny Antonelli,Vic Power,Don Newcombe,Lew Burdette,Jackie Jensen,Bob Shaw,Harvey Kuenn,Dick Groat,Vern Law,Joey Jay and Jim O'Toole. There are many good anecdotes as well as recaps for the seasons covered. Writing quality is average but the topic, at least for me, was quite interesting.
