This Week In Baseball History

Aug 7, 2019

Two of the best pitchers of the Dead Ball Era faced off 109 years ago this week, putting up matching goose eggs for 16 innings before the game between the Athletics and White Sox was called on a account of darkness. It serves as a perfect jumping off point to discuss the fantastic new graphic non-fiction book Baseball Epic: Famous and Forgotten Stars of the Dead Ball Era with author and illustrator Jason Novak. Plus, happy birthday to Claude Osteen!
