Touching second by Johnny Evers( Book )
2 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 28 libraries worldwide
"Johnny Evers was widely considered the brainiest ballplayer of his day and, along with Ty Cobb, one of the most cantankerous. One of the all-time great practitioners of the inside game, Evers was quick to spot the unwatched-for advantage that might propel his team to victory." "In 1910's Touching Second, Evers and sportswriting great Hugh Fullerton describe the game as it was played during the first decade of the twentieth century. Emphasizing what he saw as baseball's development "into an exact mathematical sport," Evers describes the great plays and players and offers "anecdotes and incidents of decisive struggles on the diamond.""--Jacket

Johnny Evers collection ( Archival Material )
in English and held by 1 library worldwide
A small collection of manuscripts, photographs, printed matter, and realia belonging to Hall of Fame second baseman Johnny Evers (1881-1947). The collection consists of personal items preserved by Johnny Evers and by his son, John J. Evers, Jr. Many of the items derive from the so-called European tour undertaken by Charles Comiskey, John McGraw, and members of the Chicago White Sox and New York Giants in 1924, in which Evers participated as manager of the White Sox. After playing five exhibition games in Canada, the entourage (which included family members of some players) sailed from Quebec to Liverpool, arriving on 22 October. Games were played at Liverpool on 23 October, and at London on 24 October and 6 November (the latter before the royal family). The teams then left for France, where they played at least one game before recrossing the Atlantic. The tour as originally planned was more extensive, but was cut short; it surely failed in its goal "to try and transplant America's game" to the visited countries. Items in the collection relating to the tour include a scrapbook of European newspaper and periodical clippings, photographs, a program and other ephemera, and Evers' uniform shirt and pants, specially made for the occasion. Other materials in the collection include several short manuscript letters to Evers; additional photographs (many from Evers' years with the Braves, and from later in life); five baseballs, including two team-signed balls of the 1914 Braves; and six medals and other bits of realia. There are also a number of books, including Evers' personal copy of Touching Second, bound in limp leather and stamped in gilt, with marbled endpapers. Also among the books are personal bound copies of Spalding's Official Base Ball Guide (6 vols.: 1902-1904; 1905-1907; 1908-1910; 1908; 1913; 1915); The Reach Official American League Base Ball Guide (3 vols.: 1902-1904; 1905-1907; 1908-1910); and Spalding's Official Base Ball Record (1 vol.: 1908-1910). These volumes are not included in the container list below; they have been cataloged for the Rare Books collections
