The Gashouse Gang
There are baseball heroes—and then there are legends. “The Gashouse Gang” tells the story of Dizzy Dean who stands among the legendary players who have left their mark on America’s game. History remembers Dizzy not only for his prowess on the pitcher’s mound, but also for his character off of it. The story harkens back to a simpler time—when a sharecropper’s son from Arkansas (or was it Oklahoma? Maybe Mississippi?) could make his way from the Army to the Major Leagues. This 12 chapter story is appropriate for upper elementary and all secondary grade levels.
Three new chapters will be posted each Monday in April.
