Synopsis

A Class C minor league during a turbulent 15 years: its stirring history reveals what minor league baseball - indeed, all of baseball - was experiencing. Begun in the Depression, this league saw the coming of night baseball, World War II, the prosperous postwar era, integration, competition with television, and final demise. And here are the stories of stars in the making: Bob Lemon, Tommy LeSorda, Al Rosen, Lou Burdette, Frank Malzone, Vic Raschi. Those who never made it to the majors are also presented. This book - through groundbreaking research, and dozens of personal interviews - captures the essence of minor league ball in this era.
