"Charles Alexander has an uncanny knack of putting his subject into its historical context. Several years ago author David Block wrote an outstanding book about the origins of baseball. It was entitled Baseball Before We Knew It. As I read Turbulent Seasons I feel it could be subtitled Baseball As We've Come To Know It. Alexander shines a bright and often amusing light on a cast of characters comprising some of baseball's most colorful players and owners, including a hard-living, fun-loving group of players who literally attempted to hijack baseball and almost pulled it off over the course of one very ‘turbulent season." - Rick Huhn, author of Eddie Collins and The Sizzler: George Sisler, Baseball’s Forgotten Great. 272pp.
