New York, Kensington, 1996. First edition. Chicago Cubs infielder Mickey Rawlins is having the best year of his career, but it's his hard luck that it has to come during WWI, when the government might shut down baseball for the duration. Anti-German hysteria is at its peak as a rookie named Willie Kaiser is shot dead at the ballpark. Mickey feels the heat from the owner, who threatens to release Mickey if he doesn't find out who is sabotaging the team. Fine in fine dust jacket, SIGNED by author to title page, $35.00.
