Description by

Of the 256 players, managers, and executives in the Hall of Fame, the names we know well - Ty Cobb, Connie Mack, Willie Mays - account for a small minority. But all other members of the Hall of Fame were celebrated in their day, or else by baseball historians in the days since. Yet most fans know little about these men.

This book contains biographical and statistical information on 16 previously overlooked Hall of Famers, including Morgan G. Bulkeley, Candy Cummings, Roger Bresnahan, Jack Chesbro, Jesse Burkett, Kid Nichols, Bobby Wallace, John Clarkson, Elmer Flick, Eppa Rixey, Jake Beckley, Roger Connor, Vic Willis, Willie Wells, Frank Selee, and Bid McPhee. These men, selections of the oft-criticized Veterans Committee, all enjoyed remarkable careers - and were themselves remarkable stories, as the author discovered.
