Synopsis

This book of history delves deeply into the forgotten season of the 1908 Vols and their fight to have a championship season. It examines the personalities of the ballplayers and the traits - still important today - that they exhibited on the diamond a century ago. The book also focuses on larger sociological concerns along with the players and their season. The organizational development of the game with its evolution of rule changes is reviewed to provide necessary background for the reader. It covers the rags-to-riches-to-rags story of this Southern Association team in the Deadball Era and includes characters such as Grantland Rice, Bill Bernhard, Jack Daubert, and several others.
