Acknowledgments In compiling

by John C Skipper
Acknowledgments In compiling the information for this book, the author rediscovered what he learned long ago— that a project like this is not only an exercise in writing and research but a living, breathing example of a math formula: The whole is equal to the sum of its parts. The book, in its whole, could not have been accomplished without the parts contributed by a great many people. The author gratefully acknowledges the assistance of Bruce Markuson of the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York; author Rich Marazzi; baseball historian Lloyd Johnson; Mark Alvarez, former editor of National Pas-time; WGN radio and television in Chicago; the Society for American Base-ball Research; Retrosheet; baseballlibrary. com; many former ballplayers but in particular the late Hank Sauer; and a special thanks to a support team who continue to provide encouragement, including Bob Link, Michael Grandon, Lorris and Myrna Long, Ray and Darlene Boehlje, Dean and Bonnie Jacobs, Dan and Kay Bjerke, Frank and Judy Smillie, Rick and Kim Bendickson, the Rev. Tammy Swanson- Draheim, the Rev. Craig Pinley, Jim Collison and Ted Savas. As always, a special thanks to a special person: my wife, Sandi Skipper. vi
