From the Author:
The late great Gary Kline's book "The Official N.H.P.A History of the World Tournament 1909-1980", Vol. 1, is slightly misnamed since it only covers the men's events. But that won't stop me from continuing the book into Volume Two. I realize the World Tournament is much more than just the Mens Division, but it can be argued that the Mens Division is special. The Mens Division is the oldest, the largest, and most would say, it carries the most skill. At the very least, the Mens Championship group is the most skilled group pitching from the longest distance. So this book covers the Mens Division Championship group from the years 1981 through 2011. Enjoy !
