In 1939, baseball was in a precarious position. There were no lights at night, no stadiums with modern amenities, and no professional leagues. The sport was in the middle of a transformation, and it needed a savior. Enter John McGraw and Connie Mack. McGraw and Mack, two of baseball's most iconic figures, helped to bring the game into the modern era and change the way people viewed and played the sport. 1939: Baseball's Tipping Point is the story of their efforts and the pivotal year that changed the game forever.; 8vo; [i-viii], xi-xvi, 1-288 pages; Signed by Author.
