Here is the text from the press release for the book:
Despite a long and uneven history, Major League Baseball’s Washington franchises have hardly been the stuff of
legend. However, in 1969, when new owner Bob Short coaxed batting legend and rookie manager Ted Williams out of
retirement, these annual no-names climbed out of the depths and straight into the hearts of Washington baseball
fans starving for a winner. Led by The Capital Punisher Frank Howard, whose tape-measure home runs sometimes
seemed like optical illusions, the Senators simply won ball games with a determination rarely seen in D.C.
environs. A Whole ew Ballgame showcases the 1969 Senators’ magical season, complete with player bios,
photographs, stats, game action, and stories.
