100 Years Of Baseball: The Intimate And Dramatic Story Of Modern Baseball [Kindle Edition]

“No One Who Wants to Know Baseball History Should be Without this Book” — Portland Press Herald

The story of America’s pastime is rooted in our history. The most commonly told stories of baseball are no mystery. They can easily be found in any of the thousands of books on this team or that player. In 100 Years of Baseball, we get to look even further into the past at the stories that didn’t make the headlines.

Down through the years as baseball grew, Lee Allen traces the development… the New York knickerbockers of yesteryear; Jackie Robinson; the dark days of 1919, to the shenanigans of Durocher and MacPhail, and the New York Yankee world series monopoly.

For a full-fledged history of professional baseball with all its crises, climaxes and heroes 100 Years of Baseball is a book that will excite you like no other.

St. Louis Cardinals IQ: The Ultimate Test of True Fandom (Volume II) [Kindle Edition]

St. Louis trailed Milwaukee by ten games in the NL Central on August 25, 2011, and even more discouraging was the 10.5 game deficit to Atlanta that the Cardinals faced in the Wild Card chase. That frustration was completely erased on September 29, however, as the Cardinals completed one of the greatest comebacks in history to make the postseason. It took a lot of help from a Braves team that lost 20 of its final 31 games, but the Cardinals did their part, winning 23 of 32 to close out the regular season and claim the Wild Card berth on the season’s final day.

But the fun was just starting for this club.

The Phillies and the Brewers were expected to meet in the NLCS, but the Cardinals spoiled their postseason plans as well, knocking off the Phillies first, and then taking care of the Brewers in the NLCS to claim the pennant and set up a seven-game showdown with the Texas Rangers in the 2011 World Series.

The drama of the 2011 season unfolded against the backdrop of Albert Pujols’ looming free agency and an uncharacteristic slow start offensively for arguably the greatest player of his generation — but when a fractured left forearm threatened to sideline the three-time MVP in late June for up to six weeks, Pujols demonstrated the tenacity and intense desire to win that come October would define this Cardinals team … and he returned to the field after only two weeks.

No wonder this team was down to it’s final strike in consecutive innings in Game 6 of the World Series, with the season, hopes, and dreams of its fans all hanging in the balance, and somehow still prevailed.

This second volume of Cardinals history and trivia from author Larry Underwood and Black Mesa Publishing is a tribute not only to the 2011 World Series Champion Cardinals, but to the many legends and heroes who’s exploits on the field of play have made this organization one of the most respected and accomplished in professional sports.

2011 was a remarkable season for the Cardinals. Their Manager, Tony la Russa, tells it from his perspective. If you are a Cardinal fan this is one book you definitely want in your Library.

One Last Strike: Fifty Years in Baseball, Ten and Half Games Back, and One Final Championship Season [Kindle Edition]

One Last Strike by legendary baseball manager Tony La Russa is a thrilling sports comeback story. La Russa, the winner of four Manager of the Year awards—who led his teams to six Pennant wins and three World Series crowns—chronicles one of the most exciting end-of-season runs in baseball history, revealing with fascinating behind-the-scenes details how, under his expert management, the St. Louis Cardinals emerged victorious in the 2011 World Series despite countless injuries, mishaps, and roadblocks along the way. Talking candidly about the remarkable season—and his All-Star players like Albert Pujols and David Freese—the recently retired La Russa celebrates his fifty years in baseball, his team’s amazing recovery from 10 ½ games back, and one final, unforgettable championship in a book that no true baseball fan will want to miss.

Intentional Walk: An Inside Look at the Faith That Drives the St. Louis Cardinals [Kindle Edition]

An inside look at the faith that guides the all-stars.

The St.
Louis Cardinals have long been one of the most successful franchises in the
major leagues. They have won 11 World Series titles and some of the most famous
players in the history of the game have worn the storied “Birds on the Bat”
uniform.

While that
on-field success has been well documented, Intentional
Walk is the first book which goes beyond the story of what happens on the
field to take an in-depth look at the men inside the Cardinal uniforms, and
examine how their strong Christian faith is one of the driving forces behind
their success.

Intentional Walk features the stories of Adam
Wainwright, David Freese, Lance Berkman, Matt Holliday, Carlos Beltran, Jason
Motte and other members of the 2012 Cardinals, written as those players and the
rest of the team tried to repeat the 2011 world championship. The book talks
about how they became Christians and offers their testimony about what it means
for them to have God play such a prominent role in their lives.

Playing for
first-year manager Mike Matheny, a strong Christian as well, these men talk
about their success and failure, about the challenges that come from playing
baseball at the highest level, and how thankful and blessed they are to have
that God-given ability. In the end, however, what is far more important to them
is their life-long relationship they have established with Jesus Christ.

Hallways in the Night: A Legal Thriller [Kindle Edition]

From Bookstory: “A totally unputdownable book……An edge of the seat legal battle that makes you keep turning the pages until the very end.”

A legal thriller that Diane Donovan of the Midwest Book Reviews describes as “a tightly wound story of suspense and intrigue that will keep even seasoned mystery and legal thrillers guessing to the end.”

_________________________________________________

When an Atlanta cop tries to arrest baseball’s home run king, one of them will end up on trial and the other will end up dead.

A routine stakeout is almost over when Atlanta Detective Dave Mackno decides to pursue a speeding Porsche. It’s a decision that will have deadly consequences because the Porsche is driven by Remo Centrella, baseball’s home run king.

There is no way Centrella is going to let himself get arrested. Not when the woman in his car has a fresh black eye. And not when he’s at the tail-end of a steroid cycle that makes him feel like the baddest dude on the planet.

Hallways in the Night offers a fast-paced plot that keeps the pages turning. It’s a legal thriller that features a mix of engaging characters, backroom political dealing, and well-written action.

The book starts off strong and never lets up: from the initial confrontation through a courtroom showdown in which the stakes are much too high for anybody to tell “the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.”

“A good book with all the elements necessary to make it an enjoyable and satisfying read.”

About

Hallways in the Night is a legal thriller, but it is also much more. It is a novel with plot twists that surprise and will keep you guessing as you read the story. As each character joins the story, the novel widens out and becomes more complex.

Each character in Hallways in the Night helps add complexity to the novel because each character is pursuing their own agenda, usually at the expense of others. There’s enough money, power, and consequences at stake that each character is impacted by it and it influences not only the choices they make, but also forces them to decide how much of the truth they are willing to tell and how much of the truth must be sacrificed in order to either maintain the life they have or to achieve a life they desire. As a result, two of the most powerful emotions fear andambition have as much to do, if not more, with the outcome than the actual truth of what happened.

In addition to being a legal thriller, Hallways in the Night is also a story about race and power. It’s a story about how those with power wield it, often with little regards for those who will be negatively impacted by it and how they, themselves, are impacted by it.

Race relations also play a role in Hallways in the Night, but in a way that shows how race relations in America have evolved over time and how that evolution affects the lives of those living when it takes place.

“Hallways in the Night is a recommended book for readers who enjoy a combination of plot twists, action, and engaging characters.”
