"After a respectable career with the Boston Red Sox, Harvey Blissberg suddenly finds himself playing center field for the American League's new expansion team, the Providence Jewels. At the age of thirty, Harvey now feels out of place playing a boy's game on a losing team in a losing city. With his predilection for Harris tweeds and hardcover books, he is the aloof "Professor" to his teammates ; but to his feckless roommate, Jewels' relief pitcher Rudy Furth, Harvey is friend and confessor. However, one secret that Rudy never confided to Harvey is why anyone would wish to murder him. Rudy's waterlogged corpse turns up in the team clubhouse one morning with five weeks to go in the season. As the Providence police investigation stalls, Harvey Blissberg gradually begins one of his own, assembling details of his dead roommate's life that point to a variety of suspects--among them a penny ante mobster, a lovelorn fan, the team management, and a detective with a worrisome past. While trying to maintain a precarious .300 batting average, a romance with Providence's only female sportscaster, and his equilibrium among indifferent teammates, Harvey stalks Rudy's killer--through major league locker rooms and the back streets of Providence, Rhode Island" -- Book jacket flaps

When both of the missing players turn up dead, Harvey searches desperately for the link between them.

Tough luck : Sid Luckman, Murder, Inc., and the rise of the modern NFL by Richard Dean Rosen( Book )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the long annals of sports and crime, no story compares to the one that engulfed the Luckman family in 1935. As eighteen-year-old Sid Luckman made headlines across New York City for his football exploits at Erasmus Hall High School in Brooklyn, his father, Meyer Luckman, was making headlines in the same papers for a very different reason: the gangland murder of his own brother-in-law. Amazingly, after Sid became a star at Columbia and then led the Chicago Bears to multiple NFL championships, all while Meyer wasted away in Sing Sing, the connection between sports celebrity son and mobster father was ignored by the press and then overlooked for eight decades. Tough Luck traces two historic developments connected by a single immigrant family in Depression-era New York: the rise of the National Football League through the dynastic Chicago Bears, whose famed owner George Halas convinced Sid Luckman to help him turn the sluggish game of pro football into America's favorite pastime; and the demise-triggered by Meyer Luckman's crime-of the Brooklyn labor rackets and of Louis Lepke's infamous organization Murder Inc. Filled with colorful characters-from ambitious district attorney turned governor Thomas Dewey and legendary columnist Walter Winchell, to Sid Luckman's rival quarterback "Slingin'" Sammy Baugh; from hit men like "Tick Tock" Tannenbaum, to Sid's powerful post-career friends Frank Sinatra and Joe DiMaggio-Tough Luck unforgettably evokes an era of vicious Brooklyn mobsters and undefeated Monsters of the Midway, a time when the media kept their mouths shut and the soft-spoken son of a murderer could become a beloved Hall of Fame legend with a hidden past"--
