Description

Much has been written about the career of Honus Wagner, but precious little is known about the man who was deeply private and protected his personal life. He was a sports hero, "The Flying Dutchman.” Honus entered professional baseball in 1897 and quickly became one of the greatest players of the day, batting for a .300 average or better in 17 consecutive seasons. From the coal mines of western Pennsylvania to the Baseball Hall of Fame, Wagner’s contributions to the game are as great as those of any player to have worn a professional uniform. According to Hall of Famer John McGraw, "It's too bad the present generation really has no adequate picture of Wagner, no complete impression of his greatness and genius." Until now that is! Written more than seventy-five years ago and never published in book form, Wagner's stories of the game are intriguing and entertaining—a unique baseball education for any true fan!show more
