"A rousing good story, a rich tapestry of charming rogues, hustlers, and gritty ballparks that brings to sparkling life the game of baseball as it was played a century ago."–Doris Kearns Goodwin

"A wonderfully intelligent combination of business and sports history. It possesses the pace, sense of character, and evocative power of a novel."–The Boston Globe

"This is a wonderful book, a fine historical account that not only throws light on some of the game’s current issues–but also records the mercantile tradition and civic pride of one of America’s earliest great cities."–Lee Smith, GQ

"Not only does Burt Solomon bring to life the legends of old-time baseball, he does so while detailing how the team owners double-crossed each other, stole players, and squeezed salaries to the bone. I discovered that the business of baseball at the turn of the century was as vicious and complicated as it is today."–Peter Golenbock, author of Bums
