Just picked up:
"Satchel: "The Life and Times of an American Legend," by Larry Tye (2009, Random House).
"The Gashouse Gang: How Dizzy Dean, Leo Durocher, Branch Rickey, Pepper Martin, and Their Colorful, Come-from-Behind Ball Club Won the World Series--and America's Heart--During the Great Depression ," by John Heidenry (2007 Public Affairs, 250 West 57th Street, Suite 1321, NY, NY, 10107).
In game four of the World Series, Dizzy ran out to pinch run, before his manager knew what was going on and broke up a double play, when he was hit in the face near second base by a thrown ball. Dizzy had a massive bump on his forehead.
