In the 1920s Rogers Hornsby was the National Leagues foremost star, its biggest since Honus Wagnerand
its principal answer to the American Leagues Babe Ruth and Ty Cobb. He was a seven-time National League
batting champion, and his 1924 average remains the major-league high for this century. From his Texas childhood
until his death in 1962, Hornsby lived his entire life in the world of baseball, building a legend through his remarkable
involvement in every phase of the sport. His career as a player, manager, and instructor was spectacular in its
unpredictability, and the story of his life chronicles the golden age of baseball.
Charles C. Alexander, Distinguished Professor of History at Ohio University, is the author of nine books, including Our Game: An American Baseball History and the celebrated biographies Ty Cobb and John McGraw.
