Barry Bonds: A Biography (Baseball's All-Time Greatest Hitters) by John Bloom
English | Dec 30, 2004 | ISBN: 0313329559 | 156 Pages | PDF | 1,2 MB

Barry Bonds has emerged, statistically, as the most feared hitter since Babe Ruth. Bonds, winner of a record six MVP awards, holds the single-season record for home-runs, slugging percentage, on-base percentage, and walks, and is the only player ever to have hit 500 home-runs and stolen 500 bases. His statistical performance is beyond reproach, but his public image remains controversial, and recent allegations of steroid use have cast a shadow over his unprecedented accomplishments.

In Rare Form: A Pictorial History of Baseball Evangelist Billy Sunday

In Rare Form: A Pictorial History of Baseball Evangelist Billy Sunday
Publisher: University Of Iowa Press | ISBN: 0877459592 | edition 2005 | PDF | 154 pages | XX mb

From 1896 to 1935, the flamboyant and controversial Billy Sunday preached his version of the gospel to millions of people across the nation. In this nontraditional biography of the man regarded by his enthralled fans as God's unconventional messenger to a sinful world, the curator of the Billy Sunday Historic Site Museum recreates Sunday's life through a material culture lens. W. A. Firstenberger views the photographic record and the print record as well as the landscape, structure, and contents of the Sunday home in Winona Lake, Indiana, to give us an intimate view of Sunday and his family. Through an organizational scheme that incorporates memorabilia from childhood (samplers, Civil War badges), baseball (Billy's 1891 Philadelphia contract, scorecards), evangelism (cartoons, books such as Monkeys and Missing Links), social issues (KKK ads endorsing Sunday, his Women's Christian Temperance life membership certificate), life style (Arts and Crafts decorative pieces, extensive photos of the family's Mount Hood bungalow), and family relations (his personal possessions and those of his wife, Nell, and their children), In Rare Form brings together the inconsistencies between Sunday's material world and his spiritual world.

Born in the Caribbean, Jones was encouraged by his baseball-playing father and showed prodigious talent at an early age, signing with the Braves when he was only 16. Since making the majors, he has been awarded the Rawlings Gold Glove for center fielders every year since 1998, and is a five-time All-Star. With his almost-perfect glove in the outfield and aiming-for-the-wall bat, the center fielder has drawn comparisons to past greats such as Willie Mays.Andruw Jones covers all the biographical bases, with action-packed photographs, statistics, and a timeline.
