Baseball's Forgotten Heroes

From BR Bullpen


A wonderful set of biographies by Tony Salin, Baseball's Forgotten Heroes (ISBN 0809226030), published in 1999, details the careers of minor league heroes like Tony Freitas, Joe Bauman and Joe Hauser, 19th-century players Paul Hines and Bill Lange and 10 others, often using interviews by Salin to draw out the player's perspective and personality. The book also includes short bios of a few other players, and a pronunciation guide for baseball names.
