1959 White Sox Biographies Now Online at the BioProject

Two years ago, back in April 2009, the work of many SABR members was published by ACTA in the book Go-Go To Glory: The 1959 Chicago White Sox, edited by Don Zminda. The book was largely a collection of biographies of the people associated with the team, though there were many other stories on the season, the pennant race, the ballpark, broadcasters and the World Series. I highly recommend the book, which you can purchase here.

There are many great stories to be found on this page, including biographies of six Hall of Famers and several other well-known stars from the period. As usual, the lesser known players and stories are also well-told. Many of SABR's better writers are on display in this collection. Of course, there are still plenty of reasons to buy the book, which contains many other stories and pictures.
