Abstract:

Furious fastballs and mercurical managers catapult baseball into modern times, and some of the most colorful characters who ever played the game fascinate the public, from the volatile Ty Cobb to the modest Walter Johnson and the virtuous Christy Mathewson. Guided by brawling managers like the Giants' John McGraw, farmboys blossom into pros. The World Series becomes the stuff of legend and so do team loyalties. Passionate rivalries turn professional baseball into "something like a war."
