Baseball history is brimming with the weird, the bizarre, and the hard to believe. BASEBALL'S MOST WANTED chronicles seven hundred of the most outlandish players, managers and owners throughout baseball history. Its seventy lists describe in humorous detail baseball's top ten inept players, strange plays, bad practical jokes, bizarre nicknames, murderers, politicians, Don Juans, unusual contracts, notable nicknames, curses, worst trades, freak injuries, unsolved mysteries, least-known records, and more. Many of these anecdotes have been published here for the first time.
