Long DescriptionThe 1950s Red Sox were teeming with huge stories. You might know about Ted Williams, of course, but con- sider his teammates: Harry Agganis, a legendary local athlete whose tragic death is remembered by millions in the region; or Jimmy Piersall, whose illness and breakdown led to a book and two movies; or Jackie Jensen, a famous collegiate football star who forged a great career with the Red Sox. The Red Sox are famous for failing to integrate until 1959, the last team to do so. Depicted here are the people mostly blamed for this oversight (Tom Yawkey, Joe Cronin, and Mike Higgins), as well as the man who finally broke the color line (Pumpsie Green). Red Sox Baseball in the Days of Ike and Elvis is part of an ongoing series of books of baseball biographies created by members of SABR’s Baseball Biography Project. Most of these books have focused on great or iconic team- seasons; this book attempts to give a look at an entire decade. The 1950s weren’t a decade in which the Boston Red Sox excelled. There were no pennants or world championships. In fact, team performance progressively declined as the decade wore on. The Red Sox were nonetheless populated by a number of fascinating characters whose stories we believe to be worth telling and worth reading. This book represents the collaborative work of 34 members of the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR), an all-volunteer effort. For more information about other books in this series, please visit the SABR website and look for BioProject.

This is the first version of our app that is available to the public. This version is mostly an interface to our mobile web site with a few helpful tools layered over the top.

As we improve the app, we will be making it more powerful and more focused to give you more control and a better user experience.

For now the main features are easy access to the barcode scanner (your camera) and text searching.

Many more features are in the works including more actions than simple product lookups for your barcode scanner. But for now, we hope that this initial version adds some value and improves the user experience as you use the EAN Data that we have to offer.
