About the Author

Scott H. Longert is the author of six books (including four Ohio University Press titles) on Cleveland baseball history from the post-Civil War era through the middle of the twentieth century. He has an MA in American history from Cleveland State University and has appeared on numerous broadcast media shows and baseball documentaries. Longert is a lifetime resident of Cleveland, where he lives with his wife, Vicki, and several dogs and cats.


"He might not have started out this way, but Scott Longert has quietly become a pre-eminent baseball historian. He is slowly chronicling the Cleveland Indians' rich past through excellent scholarship, bringing to life former eras and the players who helped shape the franchise."--Marc Bona, The Plain Dealer
Praise for No Money, No Beer, No Pennants
"Much has been written about the great Indians players of the 1930s, but not so much on the team itself.... Longert knows his stuff and goes to the right sources, and excels at capturing life in baseball at a particularly critical time for Clevelanders as well as the country."--Marc Bona, features writer,
"Scott Longert continues his deep dive into the history of the Cleveland Indians, picking up where No Money, No Beer, No Pennants left off. This particular era--which included the signing and development of Bob Feller as the greatest pitcher in team history--has never received the dedicated treatment that Longert gives it here. This book includes much for fans of the Indians, of baseball, and of Cleveland history to love."--Jeremy Feador, Cleveland Indians team historian
