1929 Gehringer Keeps At It

In this final article following Charley Gehringer's early pro career, with the Detroit Tigers, following is an article that was reprinted in The Fowlerville Review from the Detroit Free Press:

It was also reported:

Charlie Gehringer has punched out more hits for more bases and scored more runs than any other player in the league.  He has crossed the plate 29 times and collected 40 safeties that totaled 68 bases.

For some additional reading on the "mechanical man" from Fowlerville, be sure to check out Mike Grimm's history of the village.  You can read more about his book by clicking on the link from this website to his.  Scroll down the page and look for his link at the right hand side of the page.

And now a question for my readers.  I have been working on a book of three sensational murders that took place in the early days of Fowlerville.  If I were to pursue self-publishing this book, would I have takers?  Would you be interested in purchasing a copy?  My other thoughts -- if I were to put the book on this website as an e-book of sorts, would you be willing to make donations to the site to keep things going?  Your thoughts?  Your support?
