Tinker, Evers, and Chance: A Triple Biography by Gil Bogen

Though they never led the league in double plays turned, and though at times they actively disliked one another, Joe Tinker, Johnny Evers, and Frank Chance of the Chicago Cubs have for decades been called one of the greatest, most colorful and most memorable double-play combinations of all time. But their places in the Hall of Fame have been disputed by some who believe their reputation rests with a piece of Franklin P. Adams doggerel.
This triple biography of Tinker, Evers, and Chance covers each man’s career and life before and after baseball, giving special attention to their relationship on and off the field. The author also considers the trio’s induction into the Hall of Fame in 1946 and examines the arguments made on both sides of the debate.
