Synopsis

This book documents the most muffled moments and botched plays of baseball history by telling the stories of the men who became legendary failures because of them. But arguing against the injustice of this historical branding, the book also recounts men who made nearly identical mistakes and managed to retain their reputation as professionals. Each chapter reviews the history of players who were marked for life because they failed on a grand scale, as well as many who survived similar misplays with little more than a wrist-slap.
