Overview:Pepper Martin, the Red Blood of Baseball - Pepper Martin, the ""Wild Horse of the Osage,"" is most famous for having dominated the October 1931 World Series - stealing bases, sliding on his chest, making diving catches, and driving in runs.

This biography follows Martin's rise from Oklahoma farmboy, buying his first glove with money from a paper route, to being one of America's most successful and beloved professionals. It closes with an account of his coaching career in Florida and his death in 1965, a member of the Oklahoma Hall of Fame and a loving grandfather.
