Description - The Gashouse Gang by John Heidenry
The year 1934 marked the lowest point of the Great Depression. Millions of Americans were out of work. But they found welcome relief in the sport of baseball and especially of the St. Louis Cardinals, one of the rowdiest, most colorful teams in sports history. The team was adored by the nation, who saw itself-scruffy, proud, and unbeatable-in the Gang. In The Gashouse Gang, John Heidenry brings a bygone era and a cast full of vivid personalities to life and unearths a treasure trove of baseball lore that will delight any fan of the great American pastime.
