1 Batting in a Break: The Early Innings Volume I Publisher's summary

Throughout his baseball career and life Christy Mathewson often wrote down his observations and philosophies. The most famous collection of these writings was published by John N. Wheeler in the classic baseball book Pitching in a Pinch. He was asked many times to write an autobiography yet never completed one. This book is a compilation of many of those writings not included in Pitching in a Pinch and completes, with that book and the brand new Managing in a Moment (writings of Mathewson 1916-18 while manager of the Cincinnati Reds), a marvelous and fascinating trilogy of Matty's nonfiction writings.

This book includes several personal letters and thoughts as well as obscure interviews and articles attributed to Mathewson and likely helped along by Jack Wheeler. You will marvel as the past jumps to the presents and names long forgotten bring back the grand old days of the Dead Ball Era. Mathewson was the first to ever put his name to a column and to endorse products. He was universally adored and was the most famous person in the United States in the first two decades of the 20th century. We hope you will enjoy this volume as well as the entire Mathewson Foundation collection of The Matty Books. This is volume 1 of a three volume work. Researched, transcribed, and edited by Eddie Frierson.
