Overview

This book is the result of one man’s twenty-year quest to solve some of baseball’s most enduring mysteries—the “cold cases” of major leaguers about whom virtually nothing is known. (In many instances, the various baseball encyclopedias list only their names and one other word: “deceased.”) Some of these mysterious players had negligible professional careers and their time on a major league diamond was more the result of good fortune than anything else; others were stars in their day and then vanished. The Biographical Committee of the Society for American Baseball Research is committed to finding them and award-winning researcher Peter Morris tells the story of some of the most remarkable of the searches that resulted, many of which featured twists so surprising no mystery writer could have invented them.

The work that SABR's Biographical Committee (which includes Peter Morris) does amazes me. This book highlights some of their best work. The world, especially the baseball world, needs to know what they've done and this book accomplishes that.
