520    “Won in the Ninth” is a story about a college baseball 
       team in the early 20th century. It is quite unique to 
       other baseball fiction of the era because its author, 
       Christopher “Christy” Mathewson, is one of the greatest 
       players of all time. Mathewson (1880-1925) began his 
       career at the age of 14 playing semi-professional 
       baseball. By 19, he was in the minor leagues and before 
       long, he was picked up by the New York Giants and became a
       major league pitcher. In the course of his 17 year career,
       he went on to record 373 wins, 2,507 strikeouts and 79 
       shutouts. In 1936, he was one of five inaugural inductees 
       to the Baseball Hall of Fame. Mathewson published “Won in
       the Ninth” in 1910 and was lauded for his thrilling 
       descriptions of games and the recognizable styles of many 
       of the team’s players. At the end of the story, he 
       includes a guide to his dangerous “fade away” pitch known
       today as a screwball. This fun and action packed tale is a
       can’t-miss piece of baseball’s history by one of its first
       all-time greats.
