This look at “The Rajah,” the player who led the Saint Louis Cardinals to World Series triumph in 1926, is complete with statistics of one of baseball’s greatest hitters. Hornsby hit over .400 three times in his career and has the highest career batting average of any right-handed hitter. But his life was complicated by a fondness for the racetrack and his dealings with upper-level management.

This book is part of the “Baseball’s All-Time Greatest Hitters” series from Greenwood Press.
