Although most baseball fans are familiar with the on-the-field accomplishments of the members of the Hall of Fame, few are as knowledgeable regarding their personal lives, especially those who played before the internet and 24/7 media coverage. What kind of human beings were they? How did they relate to others? What made them tick? This book probes into the personal lives of fifty members of the Hall of Fame who are no longer with us, examining their childhoods, families, influences, impactful life-changing events, and more. The players range from the really good guys to those who were eccentric or downright immoral. All were legends on the diamond, but this book takes a closer look at who these men were beyond baseball.
