Possible first edition (this publisher does not indicate edition in any consistent, verifiable manner) of the second title in the "Mel Martin Baseball Stories" series, the first two of which were published by C & L before Garden City Publishing reissued then in 1952 and added four more titles to the series (1952-53). This is the uncommon original issue and likely the first edition.
