Won in the ninth by Christy Mathewson( Book )

7 editions published between 1910 and 2015 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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

Pitching in a pinch : or, Baseball from the inside by Christy Mathewson( )

9 editions published between 1912 and 2015 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of baseball's more enduring classics and earliest memoirs, Christy Mathewson's primer, first published in 1912, has also become one of the game's foremost anthropologizes. Mathewson was one of baseball's first immortals: he was a star on the field, winning 373 games between 1900 and 1916--all but one as a Giant; an educated gentleman off the field; and a legitimate war hero who died from the effects of being gassed in World War I. Pitching in a Pinch passes on Mathewson's substantial knowledge of the game in general, and the intricacies of the mound in particular. The book's continuing delight and value rests in Mathewson's facility for capturing--from the inside--the game's ethos in the early 20th century, and the generous combination of anecdote and insight with which he shares it. His lively, humorous and fascinating book of baseball insights, stories, and wisdom, was originally in 1912 and offers a new generation of readers with Mathewson's straightforward perspective on the diamond of yore-on the players, the chances they took, the superstitions they believed in, and, most of all, their love of the game

Shoreline resources planning in the United States by Philip Roger Berke( Book )

1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation examines three state shoreline resources planning programs; Texas, Florida and California's San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission. These programs are examined in the context of the federal Coastal Zone Management Act program development criteria. Based on the successes and failures of each state's program a set of policy and organizational guidelines by which states might promote desirable forms of shoreline development is derived. These guidelines include providing a clear understanding of the police power as it relates to the public welfare rationale, and identifying the most appropriate level of government for shoreline resources management to account for state, national and local interests. A concept that appears to incorporate these guidelines and is flexible enough to allow for specific needs involving differences in states' size, extent of shoreline growth pressure, environmental sensitivity and division of power between state and local governments is the "urban development district."
