Sleeper Cars And Flannel Uniforms

My lovely wife went and bought me this book today and it is more than worth the price of $20.00.

If you are as avid a nut about the "Golden Age" of baseball as I am, you will find this little volume to be an enjoyable addition to your bookshelf.

It's told by an insider, the famous 1930's submarine pitcher of the Detroit Tigers, Elden Auker. He's the only player still alive who has played against Babe Ruth and if you read the book you will find out which famous player was almost beaten to death by the Sultan of Swat for stealing his watch!LOL.
