Baseball's ranks are filled with those whose careers may not have been as spectacular as Ruth or Mays but who played essential roles in the game's history. Some were well-known in their day; others were lesser lights whose feats and misdeeds were so notable they deserve to be remembered. Bert Shepard pitched a game for the Washington Senators in 1945 despite being shot down over Germany the year before and losing a leg. Bo Belinsky no-hit the powerful Baltimore Orioles in 1962, but he finished his career with a disappointing 28-51 record. The 40 other subjects profiled in this volume prove that, in baseball, fame can be fleeting.
