Description

With 417 victories-100 of them shutouts-Johnson ranks second to Cy Young as baseball's most winning pitcher

Ships from and sold by Dianann Books. With 417 victories-100 of them shutouts-Johnson ranks second to Cy Young as baseball's most winning pitcher. What makes that total remarkable is that the Big Train played his entire 21-year career with the Washington Senators, a weak-hitting team usually mired in the second division of the American League, although he led them to pennants in 1924 and '25.

A winner of the 1994 MacMillan/SABR Award, Walter Johnson: A Life by Jacke Kavanagh preserves the legacy of baseball's most extraordinary pitcher in this fascinating and timeless biography.

Walter Perry Johnson (November 6, 1887 – December 10, 1946), nicknamed "Barney" and "The Big Train", was a Major League Baseball right-handed pitcher. He played his entire 21-year baseball career for the Washington Senators (1907–1927). He later served as manager of the Senators from 1929 through 1932 and of the Cleveland Indians from 1933 through 1935.

I bought this for my husband who likes to read about old time baseball players. He enjoyed reading this book.

Mr. Kavanaugh does a fantastic job in memorializing the Big Train. While many biographies will tend to go into the intricacies of a man's private life, Jack Kavanaugh seems to only look into these areas when it would explain the on field actions of Johnson. "A Life" reads like a beautifully written column in the sportspage - the cold hard facts of the game with the eventful games highlighted. Futhermore, "A Life" does something else - it reminds that not all ballplayers were or are spoiled children with no sense of values or morals. I reccommend to all who hold a dear love of baseball and pitching.
