Publisher Description

On the Mound tells the stories of three great pitching stars who were determined to reach the top — the major leagues. The careers of Bob Feller, Carl Hubbell and Howard Ehmke are examples of how practice, skill, determination and team play were rewarded. Bob Feller's blazing fast ball was the sensation of the American League. From boyhood, Feller practiced constantly to become a big league pitcher. At seventeen, he joined the Cleveland Indians. The records of the next sixteen years prove that "Rapid Robert" has earned his place in the Hall of Fame. Carl Hubbell's baffling screwball and great control made him the top lefthander of his time. Although one of his greatest strike-out performances occurred in an all-star game, team-player Hubbell always felt that his best games were those he won for his own club, the New York Giants. Howard Ehmke had a colorful career with several teams before he found himself pitching for Connie Mack's Athletics. By 1929, however, Mr. Mack thought the aging Ehmke should retire. Determined to prove that he had a good game left, Ehmke pitched one of the most amazing World Series games on record. Feller, Hubbell, Ehmke — three great pitchers, three fine men. Their exciting stories will provide enjoyable reading for all young players and fans.
