This is the first ever biography of Eddie Collins, one of baseball's most consistently good batters, its best bunter and hit-and-run man, one of its craftiest base runners and finest defensive second basemen. In addition, during his career he was repeatedly referred to as the game's smartest player, both on and off the field. He was one of the game's highest paid performers, a source of much irritation throughout the years to lesser-paid players.
