Summary:

Christy "Matty" Mathewsonwas one of the most dominant pitchers ever to play baseball. Posthumouslyinducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame as one of the "Five Immortals," he wasan unstoppable force on the mound, winning at least twenty-two games for twelvestraight seasons and pitching three complete-game shutouts in the 1905 WorldSeries.
Pitching in a Pinch, originally published in1912, is an insider's account of the world of baseball, blending anecdote,biography, instruction, and social history. Always sensitive to psychology aswell as technique, Mathewson describes the game as it was played in the firstdecade of the twentieth century: the "dangerous batters"; the "peculiarities" of big-league pitchers; the"good and bad" of coaching, umpiring, sign-stealing, base-running, and springtraining; and the importance of superstition to athletes. Baseball fans will enjoyfirst-hand accounts of Mathewson's famous contemporaries, including playersHonus Wagner and Rube Marquand, managers like John McGraw and Connie Mack, andmany others, and will learn how much-and just how little-has really changed inone hundred years.
