Full Description


This work tells the story of the Waner brothers, Paul and Lloyd, from their early lives in Oklahoma through their playing days. It is also the story of two American eras: the Roaring Twenties and the Depression years. The Waners experienced the excitement of playing in the World Series, but they also encountered the pressures of having to perform in order to keep their jobs, and they struggled to overcome health problems. Both put up impressive numbers individually: Paul amassed 3,152 hits, and his.333 lifetime average ranks among the highest ever in the game. Lloyd, a lifetime.316 hitter, collected 2,459 hits, and had it not been for health problems, might have cleared the 3,000 hit milestone as well.
