Johnny Kling from the Author: Carleton Olegario M. Ximo. Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. John Kling (February 25, 1875 in Kansas City, Missouri - January 31, 1947 in Kansas City) was a catcher in Major League Baseball for the Chicago Cubs (the Chicago Orphans until 1903) (1900-1908, 1910-1911), Boston Rustlers & Braves (1911-1912), and Cincinnati Reds (1913). John Gransfield (Johnny) Kling was born and raised in Kansas City, the son of John (a baker) and Caroline Kling. It was expected that he would work in the bakery business, as his brother Charles seems to have done, but Johnny fell in love with baseball. By the age of fifteen, he was playing amateur ball.3

Johnny Evers from the Author: Dennis Snelling. For more than a century Johnny Evers has been conjoined with Chicago Cubs teammates Frank Chance and Joe Tinker, thanks to eight lines of verse penned by a well-known New York columnist. He has been caricatured as a scrawny, sour man who couldn't hit and who owed his fame to that poem. In truth Johnny Evers was the heartbeat of one of the greatest teams of the 20th century and the fiercest competitor this side of Ty Cobb. He was at the center of one of baseball's greatest controversies, a chance event that sealed his stardom and stole a pennant from John McGraw and the New York Giants in 1908. Six years later, following a stunning set of reversals and tragedies that resulted in his suffering a nervous breakdown, he made a comeback with the Boston Braves and led that team to the most improbable of championships. Spanning the time from his birth in Troy, New York, to his death less than a year after his election to the Hall of Fame, this is the biography of a man who literally wrote the book about playing his position and set the standard for winning baseball.
