The Cramps' history, influences and the cast of characters in and around the group are likewise explored in far greater depth. Features unseen first-hand interview material from Lux Interior and Poison Ivy. A wealth of new interview material with former band members and other key players in the band's history and never before seen/rare photographs and ephemera to help illustrate the book.

The Baltimore Orioles by Fred Lieb Pdf

With a legacy that spans two fiercely loyal baseball towns a half-nation apart, the Baltimore Orioles--originally the St. Louis Browns--rank among baseball's most storied teams. One of the fifteen celebrated team histories commissioned by G. P. Putnam's Sons in the 1940s and 1950s, The Baltimore Orioles: The History of a Colorful Team in Baltimore and St. Louis chronicles the club's early history and is reissued on the fiftieth anniversary of their first season in Baltimore. Hall of Fame sportswriter Frederick G. Lieb begins with the history of baseball in Baltimore from its pre-Civil War beginnings and its major-league debut as the Lord Baltimores in 1872 to the championship seasons of the National League Orioles in 1894, '95, and '96 when the roster included Willie Keeler, Joe Kelley, Kid Gleason, Roger Bresnahan, Joe McGinnity, and John McGraw. After the turn of the century, Baltimore was briefly home to the Orioles of the American League in 1901-02, then, after losing its franchise to New York, had to settle for the AAA International League Orioles until 1954. Under the leadership of Jack Dunn, the minor-league Orioles, while developing the talents of Babe Ruth, Lefty Grove, and other future major-league stars, won seven straight International League pennants from 1919 to 1926. Here, too, is the colorful history of the precursors to the current Orioles, the lovable and luckless St. Louis Browns, augmented for this edition with a new foreword from St. Louis sportswriter Bob Broeg on the escapades of the Brownies. Though they lost more than a thousand games and captured only a single pennant in fifty-three seasons, the Browns remain a legendary part of national lore. Taking their lead in different eras from larger-than-life figures such as Branch Rickey, Rogers Hornsby, Urban Shocker, and the Barnum of Baseball, Bill Veeck, the Browns "boasted a one-armed outfielder, a hired hypnotist, the mighty midget [Eddie Gaedel] and--even the best ballplayer in the land--George Sisler," as Broeg recalls in his foreword. In 1944, the Browns also played in the only all-St. Louis World Series, losing to the Cardinals. Originally published in 1955 and featuring twenty-two photographs, The Baltimore Orioles history concludes with the new American League team's first season in Baltimore, finishing seventh in the league but garnering the lasting adoration of their new hometown.

Miracle on the Eastern Shore by David A. Ranzan Pdf

In the summer of 1937 the Salisbury Indians, a Class D minor league team in rural Maryland, achieved national celebrity playing one of the most amazing comeback seasons in baseball history. Starting with 21-5, the club allegedly violated the Eastern Shore League's rules by fielding more than four players with professional experience. Forfeiting their 21 wins and plummeting to the bottom of the standings, they went on to win 59 of their last 70 games, capturing the league pennant and playoffs championship. This game-by-game account chronicles the extraordinary pitching and relentless hitting of one of the greatest minor league teams ever assembled, under the redoubtable leadership of D'Arcy "Jake" Flowers.

No Money, No Beer, No Pennants by Scott H. Longert Pdf

The Cleveland Indians of 1928 were a far cry from the championship team of 1920. They had begun the decade as the best team in all of baseball, but over the following eight years, their owner died, the great Tris Speaker retired in the face of a looming scandal, and the franchise was in terrible shape. Seeing opportunity in the upheaval, Cleveland real estate mogul Alva Bradley purchased the ball club in 1927, infused it with cash, and filled its roster with star players such as Bob Feller, Earl Averill, and Hal Trosky. He aligned himself with civic leaders to push for a gigantic new stadium that—along with the team that played in it—would be the talk of the baseball world. Then came the stock market crash of 1929. Municipal Stadium was built, despite the collapse of the industrial economy in Rust Belt cities, but the crowds did not follow. Always the shrewd businessman, Bradley had engineered a lease agreement with the city of Cleveland that included an out clause, and he exercised that option after the 1934 season, leaving the 80,000-seat, multimillion-dollar stadium without a tenant. In No Money, No Beer, No Pennants, Scott H. Longert gives us a lively history of the ups and downs of a legendary team and its iconic players as they persevered through internal unrest and the turmoil of the Great Depression, pursuing a pennant that didn’t come until 1948. Illustrated with period photographs and filled with anecdotes of the great players, this book will delight fans of baseball and fans of Cleveland.

Leadoff Batters of Major League Baseball by Herman O. Krabbenhoft Pdf

Every sport has its subtleties, and in baseball, one subtlety is the batting line-up. Leadoff batters can make or break a team. Who are the men who have taken that position, and how have they performed in their important role? From 1900 through 2005, the major leagues’ leadoff batters for more than 160,000 games are covered in this reference work. The first of the book’s five parts discusses the annual records of the principal leadoff batters. Part Two identifies the principal leadoff batter for each team in each year, as well as the top career leadoff batters. Part Three presents composite statistics for those players with five or more principal leadoff batter seasons. Part Four looks at leadoff home runs, and Part Five offers essays on assorted leadoff batter achievements, such as RBIs, runs scored, and awards and honors. Appended to the text is a discussion of the accuracy of the statistics and a list of “Make It Happen” award winners.

Courtland's Spirits by Donald Lehmann Pdf

John Courtland, the Scrooge-like owner of the Central City Champs thinks he knows the National Pastime. He lets the baseball men make the baseball decisions while he concerns himself with TV revenues, season ticket sales, merchandising deals, skyboxes, lawyers and agents and escalating player salaries. That’s what owners do. They count the money. And that’s what baseball is all about. Money. His eight-year-old grandson, Jordan, lives in a world in which baseball is an activity run by grownups. It’s all about official rules, official distances, and official uniforms. It’s about playing in front of your parents and running laps for your coaches and selling candy bars to raise money. It’s a pastime that’s directed, organized and scheduled by grownups to entertain other grownups at hours convenient to those grownups. That baseball. Courtland’s Spirits is the story of what happens when John Courtland meets the Spirits of Baseball Past, Baseball Present, and Baseball Future, and how it affects him, his team, and those around him—from his whining star pitcher to his grandson Jordan. He learns what all of us have always known but are constantly forgetting—baseball is about HITTING PITCHING RUNNING FIELDING THROWING
