230 NINE Vol. 24.1–2 him an average starter on average teams. Not a hall of famer. Dean, on the other hand, was an all- star. Overall, however, this should not totally cloud McConnell’s work. The strength of the book lies in the fact that McConnell does a fine job of showing the vagabond side of professional baseball. Therefore, if the reader is look- ing for insight into a career journeyman who showed occasional moments of brilliance on the field, they have found the right work. Moreover, in terms of accessibility, the layout of the book allows the reader to not get swallowed by the massive career of the subject. Newsom’s story is presented in short vignettes of one to three years. This allows the reader to adequately wrap their head around a whirlwind career without getting lost. In addition, the facts in the book are well documented with both copious endnotes and a solid bibliog- raphy of both primary and secondary sources. Keeping all of this in mind, if the reader can get past McConnell’s crusade to get Newsom into the Hall of Fame via the Veterans Committee, they should read this book without hesitation. Ron Kaplan.
