Praise for Tris Speaker

Tris_speaker Tris Speaker: The Rough-and-Tumble Life of a Baseball Legend by Timothy M. Gay

“[C]ompellingly depicts Speaker’s life on and off the diamond, a life that was not without its less attractive side. . . . The writing is excellent, the research is competent, and the balance of baseball and non-baseball topics is just right. . . . More importantly, Gay treats the subject of the book, Tris Speaker, the way a conscientious author should. . . . It’s a story of toughness and tenderness, of transgression and redemption. It’s not preachy; just well told. And well worth reading.”—David Shiner, Elysian Fields Quarterly
