New York, NY, U.S.A.: Little, Brown & Company, 1979. Biography of baseball's legendary "Shoeless Joe" Jackson, one of the eight Chicago "Black Sox" banned from the game for participating in the fixing of the 1919 World Series. Certainly one of the greatest players ever to step on the diamond (Babe Ruth called him the best hitter he ever saw and copied his swing) and one of it's most tragic figures. Gropman's work clarify's Jackson's role in the fix, making a convincing case for his innocence. Second printing. Very good plus in dust jacket with light spine soiling and two small chips head of spine.
