Abstract:

Pitching in a Pinch, originally published in 1912, is an insider's account blending anecdote, biography, instruction, and social history. It celebrates baseball as it was played in the first decade of the twentieth century by famous contemporaries like Honus Wagner and Ruby Marquand, managers like John McGraw and Connie Mack, and many others. Mathewson describes the "dangerous batters" he faced, the "peculiarities" of big-league pitchers, the "good and bad" of coaching, umpiring, sign-stealing, base-running, spring training, and the importance of superstition to athletes.
