    DescriptionThis is the definitive collection of America's greatest baseball photographer, Charles M. Conlon (1868-1945). To create this book, author Neal McCabe spent years combing through the archive looking for gems. To make the cut, each photograph needed to be exceptional in itself and significant to the history of baseball. This book is remarkable not only for the quality of its reproductions, but also for the interest and accuracy of its text. Each caption is meticulously based on contemporary reports and quotes from the players themselves, and famous incidents in the sport are reported with unusual detail and authority.

    Author Information
    Neal McCabe is a baseball historian and the author, with Constance McCabe, of Abrams's acclaimed Baseball's Golden Age: The Photographs of Charles M. Conlon. McCabe also edited and co-produced the audio version of The Glory of Their Times, the classic 1966 oral history of baseball by Lawrence S. Ritter. McCabe also adapted The Glory of Their Times to the stage. His lifelong fascination with baseball history was sparked in childhood by the hypnotic story-telling of Dodger announcer Vin Scully.
