Overview

Go deep inside the game with Seamheads.com founder and SABR stalwart Mike Lynch. Amazing stories about the players, managers, and owners that will educate and fascinate even the most ardent students of the game.
From “cup of coffee” cases--some tragic, some incredible--to owners who make Marge Schott look like a saint--to tales of some of the strangest lives and careers ever seen in big league baseball.
•What was behind the mysterious death of Astros’ ace Don Wilson?
•Who collected over 3000 hits and 300 home runs—in the minor leagues?
•Why did Gary Carter, the Expos’ greatest player, get exiled from Montreal?
•What is so cool about Virgil Trucks, other than his name?
•Why was 19th Century Hall of Fame star Bill Dahlen known as “Bad Bill”?
BUH: The People is part secret history, part scholarship, and 100% baseball fun.
