Description

Cellar Dwellers: The Worst Teams in Baseball History is a colorful tribute to the sport's least successful clubs. It spans three centuries of professional baseball, recounting the seasons of those teams whose misadventures have largely been forgotten over time. Chapters not only cover the stories of the luckless teams, they also include reams of statistics, amusing anecdotes, historical perspectives, and detailed player profiles of those who helped the clubs-and those who helped them fail.
