On Our Shelves Now
In 10 Rings, veteran newspaperman Jim Rygelski and the eminent baseball historian Bob Tiemann have culled this rich history to bring stories not just of the hits, runs, and errors but, more importantly, the drama involving the personalities that drove these Cardinal teams to the heights. Sam Breadon, Branch Rickey, and Rogers Hornsby battle each other for control of the team while the Cardinals subdue Murderers' Row. Pepper Martin runs wild on the bases and steals the trophy coveted by Mr. Mack's Athletics. Dizzy and Paul Dean tame some Tigers. The St. Louis Swifties led by Stan Musial vanquish the Browns. El Birdos turn Boston's Impossible Dream into a nightmare. Whitey Ball turns the tables on Harvey's Wallbangers. And Tony LaRussa's improbable Redbirds shock the world. The text includes a summary of how the Cardinals won each pennant, the linescore of each World Series game of those championship years, and great photos.
