In celebration of the 100th issue of Who’s Who in Baseball—one of the game’s most venerable publications—comes a century's worth of the annual's iconic covers, insightful breakdowns of the players featured on those covers, and informative accounts of the baseball history tied to each year’s issue. 100 Years of Who’s Who in Baseball is a colorful, must-have book of baseball nostalgia for fans of the American Pastime. The start of the baseball season brings with it a host of annual traditions and reminders, and one of the most beloved—the annual Who’s Who in Baseball—arrives on newsstands across the country every Spring Training. The 2015 season marks 100 years of Who’s Who delivering year-by-year stats to generations of baseball fans to quickly and easily track a player’s performance from the minors to the majors. And while Who’s Who is trusted as an authoritative source of baseball statistics and has been used by generations of club executives, broadcasters, journalists, and fans—it’s the publication’s cover subject that each year generates as much hot-stove speculation and buzz as off-season rumors of trades, firings, and pitching rotations. In partnership with Who’s Who in Baseball, this celebratory book features each of the annual's 100 iconic covers in full color along with an account of why the player rated the cover and what was going on in baseball at the time. From baseball’s deadball era to the dawn of “replay review,” this collection offers a gorgeously illustrated history of the game.

From an award-winning graphic artist and baseball historian comes a strikingly original illustrated history of baseball’s forgotten heroes, including stars of the Negro Leagues, barnstorming teams, semi-pro leagues, foreign leagues, and famous players like Shoeless Joe Jackson, Jackie Robinson, Willie Mays, and Joe DiMaggio before they achieved notoriety. From a young age, Gary Cieradkowski had a passion for baseball’s unheralded heroes. Inspired by his father and their shared love of the sport, Cieradkowski began creating “outsider” baseball cards, as a way to tell the little-known stories of baseball’s many unsung heroes—alongside some of baseball’s greatest players before they were famous. The League of Outsider Baseball is a tribute to all of those who’ve played the game, known and unknown. Shining a light into the dark corners of baseball history—from Mickey Mantle’s minor league days to Negro League greats like Josh Gibson and Leon Day; to people that most never knew played the game, such as Frank Sinatra, who had his own ball club in 1940s Hollywood; bank robber John Dillinger, who was a promising shortstop and took time out between robberies to attend Cubs games; and even a few US presidents—this book is a rich, visual tribute to America’s pastime. Meticulously researched, beautifully illustrated using a unique, vintage baseball-card-style, and filled with a colorful and rich cast of characters, this book is a prized collector’s item and will be cherished by fans of all ages.

One hundred years is a long time... I'm going to assume that no one is alive who saw the 1917 World Series Champion Chicago White Sox play during that season. No one is alive to tell the story of how great that 1917 team was - winning 100 games - a feat never repeated by any White Sox Team. People over the years have written about some of those players. The most famous is -Shoeless- Joe Jackson whose life has been written about in books and portrayed in movies. Hopefully, fans know that the 1917 White Sox team had three Hall of Fame players: Eddie Collins, Ray Schalk, and -Red- Faber. But what about third baseman Buck Weaver, center fielder Happy Felsch, knuckleballer Eddie Cicotte, as well as southpaw Claude -Lefty- Williams? Could Jackson and these four players been Hall of Famers, too? They all were members of the 1917 World Series champion team. These teammates also played for the 1919 American League White Sox pennant team and were driving towards the pennant again in 1920. The Black Sox scandal - that banned eight players for conspiring to throw the 1919 World Series - changed the fortunes of White Sox baseball forever. Could the fortunes of my Chicago White Sox team been different had these eight players not gone over to the dark side? It's a question that has haunted me, as well as I believe many White Sox fans over the years. A potential dynasty on the South Side of Chicago never was allowed to take root. 2017 is an ideal time to recount the glory of the 1917 White Sox team - a team for the ages! Plus, the author gives his personal recollections of being a fan of the Pale Hose. Finally, he provides a brief look back on the one hundred years of White Sox baseball being celebrated in 2017. The players, specific games, and personal vignettes all combine for the reader to enjoy. Play Ball!! -The Greatest Franchise That Never Was- Mark Pienkos
