Sinopse

An irony of enshrinement at the baseball Hall of Fame is that it’s no guarantee of lasting name recognition. The sport’s history stretches too far back, as today fans scratch their heads about athletes and owners who were among the most celebrated public figures of their time. Who was more renowned than George Wright, baseball’s greatest star during the transition from amateur to professional play? Who was more feared than Big Dan Brouthers? Maybe it was Amos Rusie, who threw so hard that some say the rules makers increased the pitching distance just to make things fair. Of the 256 players, managers and executives in the Hall of Fame, the names that are known well—Ty Cobb, Connie Mack, Willie Mays—account for a small minority. This McFarland E-Single contains biographical and statistical information on John Clarkson, who enjoyed a remarkable career—and was a remarkable story, as the author discovered. This E-Single originally appeared in Ghosts in the Gallery at Cooperstown as Chapter 8.
