Charles C. Alexander’s biography of Tris Speaker chronicles the twenty-two-year career of arguably the greatest centerfielder ever to play the position. It follows the colorful ballplayer through his years with the Boston Red Sox, the Cleveland Indians, the Washington Senators, and the Philadelphia Athletics, and on into his later years as minor league manager and part owner, civic activist, Indians coach, and general promoter of the National Pastime. Alexander describes not only every significant major league game in which Speaker played, but also the careers of his teammates and opponents, the baseball of their day, and the way it changed within the context of the larger world around them. Tris Speaker’s reputation receives new luster in Alexander’s even-handed biography of one of baseball’s greats. Published by Southern Methodist University Press, this title is now available in a limited quantity exclusively from McFarland.
