Abstract:

"Carolina athletes and teams have won Heisman trophies, Olympic medals, championship belts in pro boxing and pro wrestling, and national titles in just about every sport people play. The region is home to tales and personalities both renowned and obscure: Stock car driver Richard Petty, who won 200 NASCAR races; 'Shoeless' Joe Jackson, who may or may not have thrown the 1919 Black Sox World Series, but definitely inspired the movie Field of Dreams; Clemson University, whose campus becomes the third largest city in South Carolina every time they play a home football game; The ACC's 'Big Four' of college basketball, with ten national titles among them; Ernie Shore, a Boston Red Sox pitcher who took over a game after his teammate - a Baltimore kid named George Herman Babe Ruth - was ejected for arguing the first pitch, and proceeded to throw a perfect game for which he was never credited." "Sports in the Carolinas boasts dozens of essays, profiles and personal reminiscences that celebrate these amazing stories and more. Proceeds benefit the Public Library of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County."--Jacket.
