What People are Saying About This

William E. Leuchtenburg

Reading Breaking the Slump is like being given a box seat on Opening Day. In vivid detail, Charles Alexander brings to life the Gas House gang and the many other luminaries who brightened the dark days of the Great Depression in baseball's greatest decade.
