Florida's First Big League Baseball Players: A Narrative History
Written by baseball historian and enthusiast, Wes Singletary, this engaging book is a narrative journey into the early days of baseball in Florida and America before 1950, when only a handful of Flordia boys got their shot at the big leagues. Portraying Hall of Famers and record breakers, this collection allows readers to journey back to a time when the game was more innocent and the heart of the men playing, a little bigger.
