From the Publisher
This fascinating book covers every era of baseball and really answers the question of which players were the greatest of all time. Robert Cohen, a baseball scholar, examines the Hall of Fame from many perspectives, including its history and selection process, and defines the qualities a true Hall of Fame player should possess. Controversial sections include profiles of players linked to the use of performanceenhancing drugs, along with the cases of Shoeless Joe Jackson and Pete Rose.
