Glory Days

We know being an Indians fan can increase your stress levels at times. So, take a deep breath and step up to the plate with two books that reflect on past Tribe greatness.
by Chris Dobstaff
The Book Cleveland Indians Legends (Black Squirrel Books, $29.95) The Best They Could Be (Potomac Books, $22)
Synopsis A look at the 40 most memorable players in franchise history A thorough account of the team's run from sixth place in 1916 to the World Series in 1920
The Author A sportswriter and columnist for The Plain Dealer for 32 years, Russell Schneider covered the Indians from 1964-1977, providing great insight into Tribe personalities. Scott H. Longert, who has penned articles for The Plain Dealer and The Baseball Research Journal, offers a crisp style that brings the World War I-era story to life.
Fun Fact Rocky River native George "The Bull" Uhle introduced the slider to baseball during the 1920s. Jack Graney rode into the late innings of a 1919 spring training game on the horse that pulled the lawn mower around the field.
