Synopsis

"In this book, Reed Browning re-creates the life of Denton True "Cyclone" Young and places his story in the context of a rapidly changing, turn-of-the-century America. Born in rural Ohio, the son of a Civil War veteran, Young learned his trade at a time when only underhand pitching was permitted. When he began his professional career in 1890, pitchers wore no gloves and stood five feet closer to the better than they do today. By the time he retired after the 1911 season, the game of baseball had evolved into its modern form and claimed unquestioned status as America's "national pastime.""--BOOK JACKET.
