W.G. Braund has fashioned - marvellously reimagined - a life of the legendary Philadelphia Phillies’ Hall of Famer Ed Delahanty. Replete with authentic turn-of-the 19th century American-Irish vernacular, Philadelphia local color, and well-researched historical narrative, "The Only Del" reveals a deeply loving, humanly flawed, tragically fated, unmistakably talented hero, “the greatest batsman in the land”.
Richard Orodenker, Author of "The Phillies Reader"
The 19th century’s biggest star, Ed Delahanty was a five-tool player before the term existed. Will Braund wonderfully recounts Ed Delahanty’s life in an engaging story.
Scott Butler, "So You Think You’re a Phillies Fan"
“A fascinating look at one of baseball’s greatest hitters. Not only does this book capture the details of Ed Delahanty’s amazing career, with extraordinary insights it provides a look at his tumultuous life off the field. A super read.”
