[mild shelfwear, front board slightly bowed, previous owner's note on ffep, referring to his occasional marks in text to indicate players "deceased since printing of book"; jacket edgeworn, a few small chips and tears]. (B&W photographs) "A nostalgic look at the baseball players of the Fifties," an alphabetical encyclopedia featuring short profiles and anecdotes about "virtually everyone who appeared in a major league ballgame from 1950 through 1959," with a particular focus on "where are they now?" Appropriately, the book's foreword is by the Zuverink (George) of the title, a right-handed pitcher (32-36 lifetime) who spent time with the Indians, Reds, Tigers and Orioles, and went on to a career in the insurance business in Phoenix, Arizona.
