Description
At the dawn of the 20th century, baseball has caught on like wildfire in the big cities. As 1904 is set to mark the second year of the modern-day World Series, one of the most heated rivalries in sports history begins to emerge. In order to defend their title, Boston needs to get past their future nemesis from New York. But as the season winds down to its final series, a myth is growing out of the very fibers of the American fabric itself. Fantastical rumors have been romanticizing an unknown hitter who is said to be batting one thousand! This is the story of that mythical slugger, Carl Jaxsom, a man playing in an age of the game that won’t allow his presence, told through the youthful eyes of a Boston grandfather recounting the tale to his grandson. Through it, an entire era in baseball and American history comes alive. Pure Baseball is a brief but richly satisfying work that every fan of the sport should experience.
