Sinopse

Jake Hehl, the subject of my e-book, was a German-American athlete from Brooklyns Williamsburg section. He was a standout all-around athlete at Brooklyn Prep High School. Hehls father was a bartender, whose parents were native Germans. Jake married a German-American woman and, in later years, worked in his fathers profession. Herman Charles "Jake" Hehl was a versatile sports performer. When his baseball career ended, around 1930, he moved on to bowling. In the 1930s and early 1940s his bowling achievements were chronicled in numerous Brooklyn Eagle newspaper articles. I became interested in Jake Hehl, because he pitched only one inning in major league baseball. Delving into his background, I found more than enough newspaper articles, ancestry records, and statistics from various internet websites, to write extensively about his life. Readers of biography and Brooklyn history, as well as researchers of German ancestry, will be interested in this E-book. Its unfortunate that athletes like Jake Hehl are not chronicled by sports biographers, who most often concentrate on athletes who are unusually gifted. Jake Hehls impact as an athlete extended from 1916-1941. His longevity in sports is exceptional.
