KIRKUS REVIEW

For fans- whether the sand lot variety or big league- this is a natural. The ""best"" refers to the top players, managers, etc., connected with the great American sport. A short biography for each man- how they played the game- their special attributes- their great plays and great errors- their glory and their fame- their records and place in base- ball history. To mention a few, here are Connie Mack, Ty Cobb, Carl Hubbell, Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Dizzy Dean and others. The wealth of material includes scores, behind the scenes shop talk, the very flavor of the game itself. The kind of book that will supply the answers to a lot of arguments. Obvious market.
