    One thought on “Deadball Stars of the National League”

    1. A nice coffee table book and a nice easy read that can be put down and picked up pretty easily. The book arranges the League, first is well known umpires (Hank O'Day and Bill Klem) as well as several executives of the National League. It then lists the team by order of wins during the Deadball era, which they consider to be from 1901-1920, starting with the New York Giants and ending with the St. Louis Cardinals.

It gave an overview in the beginning, and also wrote about a a couple of the most prominent umpires during that time, as well as about the Presidents of the National League.
