"In July 2007 a rare baseball card was sold at auction for almost three million dollars. The player on the card was...the most famous shortstop baseball has ever known. His name was Honus Wagner. This is his story." Honus Wagner played baseball in an era when there were twelve teams and sometimes the fans came out of the stadium to share their opinions with the umpires. There weren't any bonuses and there weren't any steroids and he won the National League batting championship in 1900, 1903, 1904, 1906, 1907, 1908, 1909 and 1911. He even stole three bases in one inning-a record that stands today. "And he did it all without drugs or fancy training programs or million-dollar incentives-just for the pure love of the game." This is a wonderful, folksy biography of this fine athlete. 40 pages
