Leading British baseball writers come together to provide an engaging tale of the sport’s history in the country by focusing on standout pitchers’ defining seasons.
Beginning with John Reidenbach in 1890 and running through to Jason Roberts in 2010, nine “Ace” pitchers and a less conventional standout – the “Joker” – are put under the spotlight. In addition, several other star pitchers are featured in a short stories section. In what is a truly international effort, contributing authors include Harvey Sahker (Ontario, Canada), Joanne Hulbert (Massachusetts, USA), Josh Chetwynd (Colorado, USA), Jeff Archer (California, USA), Mark George (Kent, UK), and Matt Smith (Cambridgeshire, UK). Additional research assistance was provided by Graham Rumble (Queensland, Australia), Colin Allan (East Yorkshire, UK), and Alan Smith (London, UK; Auckland, New Zealand).
