Author Series: Dan D'Addona
The Hall of Fame will welcome author Dan D'Addona to talk about his new book, In Cobb's Shadow.
Considered one of the greatest baseball players of all time, Ty Cobb cast a shadow over the game with his daring style of play and his status as one of the game's finest pure hitters. His shadow was never darker than when it fell on his teammates. Sam Crawford, Harry Heilmann and Heinie Manush were three of the greatest players in history, good enough to become members of the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Each of these stars played in the Tigers' outfield alongside Cobb, though their fame never reached the level of his.
Crawford (the all-time leader in triples), Heilmann (the last right-handed batter to hit .400), and Manush (a batting champion) each made his own mark on the game. Their stories are detailed by Dan D'Addona, a graduate of the Hall of Fame's Steele Internship program.
