I’ve contributed to five books on baseball history. The player profiles are also used for the Society for Baseball Research’s Bio Project, which is looking to add a player profile for every player in Major League Baseball history. Some of these players died many decades ago and are mostly forgotten except for the big baseball history fan. Here are the profiles I’ve written for books.
