During his remarkable 17-year career (1900-1916), Christy Mathewson was the dominant pitcher in the National league. His 373 wins stand as the third highest total in baseball history. Mathewson was a gentleman, a rarity in the raucous world of baseball at the turn of the century, and a favorite among fans.
Game by game, the remarkable career of this Hall of Fame hurler is analyzed. Interwoven are tales of his personal life and the colorful characters who were a part of baseball in the early 1900s-like John McGraw, Joe McGinnity, Rube Marquard, Bugs Raymond. Appendices give records and milestones. Includes illustrations, notes, bibliography and index.
