Johnny Allen didn't particularly want to, but as a young man he resumed attending Sunday school. This made him eligible to play outfield in a church baseball league. It was the right thing to do. In a few years, he was pitching in the major leagues. The book Fiery Fast-Baller traces how this superb, self-trained athlete made his own way from an upbringing in a North Carolina orphanage to tbe pinnacle of big-time baseball.. He was the game's top rookie after joining the New York Yankees in 1932, and set pitching records while with the Cleveland Indians in 1937 and 1938. His career paralleled that of Babe Ruth, a good friend of his. The book could not help wondering why Allen never has been admitted to the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Maybe it's because, as someone driven to win, time and again he fought and argued with managers, umpires, club owners and other players. He made himself memorable as "Jawin' Jawn," one of baseball's most colorful characters.

A celebration of the machine and the men who took to the skies in defence of Britain. It is also the dramatic illustration of a little understood truth: the Spitfire did more than win the Battle of Britain - it won the war. It was not Stalingrad which turned the corner of the war against Hitler, it was the Spitfire in the summer of 1940 when RAF Fighter Command destroyed the myth of Nazi invincibility.

Pitchers, the pitches they throw, and how they throw them -- these days it's the stuff of constant scrutiny, but there's never been anything like a comprehensive source for such information. That's what preeminent baseball analyst Bill James and ESPN.com baseball columnist Rob Neyer realized over lunch more than a dozen years ago. Since then, they've been compiling the centerpiece of this book, the "Pitcher Census," which lists specific information for nearly two thousand pitchers, ranging throughout the history of professional baseball. The Guide also offers: A "dictionary" describing virtually every known pitch The origins and development of baseball's most important pitches Top ten lists:...

Creamer, the ebullient Jocko makes his many years of umpiring so real that the reader can smell the peanuts and hear the swat of the ball. Jocko is packed with funny stories about famous players and the beleaguered umpire?s lot.
