HOWARD KAZANJIAN and CHRIS ENSS. The Death Row All Stars: A Story of Baseball, Corruption, and Murder. Two Dot. 176 pages,  paperback.

Death Row Inmates Play Ball for Stays of Execution.

It was the golden age of baseball, and all over the country teams gathered on town fields in front of throngs of fans to compete for local glory. In Rawlins, Wyoming, residents lined up for tickets to see slugger Joseph Seng and the rest of the Wyoming Penitentiary Death Row All Stars as they took on all comers in baseball games with considerably more at stake. Teams from Reno, Nevada; Klamath Falls, Oregon; Bodie, California; and throughout the west longed to take on the murderers who made up the line-up. This is a fun and wildly dramatic and suspenseful look at the game of baseball and at the thrilling events that unfolded at a prison in the wide-open Wyoming frontier in pursuit of wins on the diamond.
