Alexander Charles has written biographies of John McGraw, Rogers Hornsby and Tris Speaker, inspiring a veritable flood of copiously researched baseball biographies written by authors who learned from Alexander that it was okay to take baseball seriously. In 2003, Alexander's "Breaking the Slump: Baseball in the Depression Era" garnered the Seymour Medal, awarded by the SABR to "the best work of baseball history or biography published in the preceding year."
