Widely regarded as one of the most gifted first basemen ever to play the game, he is also regarded as the most corrupt individual to play the game. Prince Hals charismatic personality, however, helped him overcome repeated accusations of throwing games, bribing players, betting against his own team and various other misbehaviors.

At the time of the 1919 World Series fix--the so-called Black Sox scandal--he was thought to have been the mastermind and was banned from organized ball. He died penniless in a state hospital after World War II, the victim of beriberi brought on by years of alcoholism and poor diet. This is fictional but carefully factual autobiography. Based on extensive research, it chronicles Chases many exploits.

Even more revealing, it also traces the corruption of the mans soul.
