"Cy Young: A Baseball Life" won the Casey Award for the Best Baseball Book of the Year, was a finalist for the Seymour Medal of the Society for American Baseball Research and a "Choice" Outstanding Academic Book.
Reed Browning is professor of history and former provost at Kenyon College.
"Each year the top pitchers in both leagues are honored with the Cy Young Award, but how many of today's fans really know much about the winningest hurler of them all? Browning digs deep to uncover the real story behind this pitching legend, whose innovations were essential to baseball's growth in the 19th and early 20th century." "This will be the standard biography of Denton True Young for a long time to come." "A carefully researched book written in a straight-forward reporter's style that should satisfy baseball buffs." "Cy Young beat out nine other nominated books to win the coveted bronze Casey plaque.... This is an important biography which gets an A-plus for its originality and coverage of Cy Young's entire life.... It is difficult to imagine a more definitive biography of Young ever being done." "A wonderfully nuanced and researched biography." "An unusually readable book.... This biography is exemplary." "Browning has filled a void in baseball's biographies of its greats in authoring a 'no stone unturned' book about Young.... A superb Young reader, documentary, [and] biography."
