Reading A Book About Denton True “Cy” Young

December 15, 2018

I am currently reading a remarkable book written in the year 2000, about the one and only pitching great, “Cy” Young, a man whose pitching prowess began over a century earlier.

The author, Reed Browning, a professor of history at Kenyon College then and a renowned author, does a great job of putting Young’s accomplishments in perspective.

While extremely knowledgeable and interested in baseball beginning in the twentieth century, I have learned so much about baseball’s history in the century before, while reading the book.

Browning (there is a name out of 19th century baseball as Pete Browning was a tremendous hitter) and Young are a victorious combination, this book a recollection of a man, whose pitching is truly legendary.

 

I will have more on this fantastic book, subject and author as I continue reading, in the days to come.
