An inside baseball memoir from the game's first superstar, with a foreword by Chad Harbach
Â
Christy Mathewson was one of the most dominant pitchers ever to play baseball. Posthumously inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame as one of the "Five Immortals," he was an unstoppable force on the mound, winning at least twenty-two games for twelve straight seasons and pitching three complete-game shutouts in the 1905 World Series. Pitching in a Pinch, his witty and digestible book of baseball insights, stories, and wisdom, was first published over a hundred years ago and presents readers with Mathewson's plainspoken perspective on the diamond of yore-on the players, the chances they took, the jinxes they believed in, and, most of all, their love of the game. Baseball fans will love to read first-hand accounts of the infamous Merkle's Boner incident, Giants manager John McGraw, and the unstoppable Johnny Evers and to learn how much-and just how little-has really changed in a hundred years.
