Pitching in a Pinch

by Christy Mathewson

A tale of the Big leaguers, their habits and their methods of playing baseball written by one of their number, a pitcher of national reputation.

Chapters: The most dangerous batters i have met; "Take him out!"; Pitching in a pinch; Big league pitchers and their peculiarities; Playing the game from the bench; Coaching— good and bad; Honest and dishonest sign stealing; Umpires and close decisions; The game that cost a pennant; When the teams are in spring training; Jinxes and what they mean to a ball-player; Base runners and how they help a pitcher to win; Notable Instances where the "inside" game has failed.

"To the baseball enthusiast who knows the men or has seen the games described it will be very entertaining reading. Contains less theory and more personal recital and anecdote than Evers' 'Touching second.' "

Author of the Day

Graceley Knox & D.D. Miers
USA Today bestselling authors, Graceley Knox and D.D. Miers may be long-lost sisters, but their moms continue to deny it. They are most definitely the co-writers of the Kresova Vampire Harem series, as well as a multitude of other upcoming projects they can't wait to share with readers. Together they tend to share the same brain, finish each other's thoughts, laugh way too hard at inappropriate comments, drink enough coffee to qualify for an intervention, and talk about their fur babies. As our Authors ot the Day, they talk about their latest book, Girl Bitten, reveal what it takes to co-write books, explain what they do with new ideas and much more.
