Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0741415070, Paperback)

Minor league baseball has long been the heartbeat of the sport in America and no one exemplifies the pulse of minor league baseball better than Leo "Muscle" Shoals.

Shoals crushed 362 home runs from 1937 to 1955 and he is often referred to as the Babe Ruth of minor league baseball.

Shoals' career nearly came to an end in 1939 as he was shot in a barroom brawl, but he recovered to become one of the most renowned sluggers in minor league history.

Shoals' greatest accomplishment came in 1949 when he hit 55 home runs, a Carolina League record which still stands.
