MISFITS! Baseball's Worst Ever Team is the tragicomic story of the hapless, hopeless 1899 Cleveland Spiders. Discover baseball's all-time single season futility leaders and winners of but 20 of 154 games that year. Meet some of the most colorful characters ever to wear major league uniforms. Follow their hysterical train-travel odyssey through the National League and straight into historical obscurity. So pathetic were these Spiders that on the season's final day, a cigar store clerk became their starting pitcher. Wondrous anecdotes abound. Baseball fans will laugh out loud! Book featured in 1999 Cleveland Indians Yearbook. Contains illustrations, appendices, sordid statistics, bibliography, and index.

MISFITS! Baseball's Worst Ever Team is also available as an ebook on Amazon.com for the Kindle.

J. Thomas Hetrick is also the author of the Seymour Medal finalist Chris Von der Ahe and the St. Louis Browns.
