Default Great book about Pitching and Pitchers

I ran across The Neyer James Guide to Pitchers: An Historical Compendium of Pitching Pitchers and Pitches at my local Barnes and Noble.

It is just what it says with about half the book focusing on current pitches and how they evolved. This section is great for anyone wondering what the difference between a forkball and a splitter. Or just interested in who had the best fastball of all time.

The second half gives a run down of almost every notable pitcher with career stats, quotes if available and most importantly what pitches they threw. I know this seems trivial but does anyone here know what pitches Doc White threw in his 1906 ws domination of the cubs? It's all there.

If you'd like to buy it try here

Whatever Doc White threw, it probably would have been like trying to hit a cantaloupe with a rolled up newspaper. Bring back the deadball!
