Going, Going, Gone! PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Going, Going, Gone! free pdf Early in the history of America's favorite pastime, trading baseball players was almost as easy as trading baseball cards. This was before the end of the reserve clause and the advent of arbitration, free agency, gargantuan salaries, and no-trade contracts. Fran Zimniuch takes an in-depth look at trading throughout the years, profiling many of infamous players who teams regrettably traded and getting insiders' perspectives from the general managers and the players themselves. With a foreword by former general manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers Fred Claire, Going, Going, Gone is a must-read for baseball fans.
