Product Overview

When the subject of baseball's greatest teams comes up, the Philadelphia Athletics are often forgotten. However, the 1929-31 Athletics were a dynasty, with some of the greatest players to ever put on a uniform. And each had a personality that exceeded their baseball prowess. The pages of this book tell the tales of men enshrined in Cooperstown because of their abilities to hit, or throw, a baseball. Players such as Lefty Grove, Al Simmons, Mickey Cochrane and one of the greatest hitters to ever live, Jimmie Foxx. And of their legendary manager, Connie Mack. But more than that, it tells the stories of men who came together, for a short period of time, to be the best ballclub ever.
