Big and Little Poison

Paul and Lloyd Waner, Baseball Brothers
Big and Little Poison

Item Details

Blackwell North Amer
The Waner brothers, Paul and Lloyd - also known as "Big Poison" and "Little Poison" - played together for fourteen seasons in the same Pittsburgh outfield in the 1920s and 1930s. They still rank as the best-hitting brothers in major league history with a combined 5,611 hits, and both Waners are in the Hall of Fame, the only playing brothers so honored.
This dual biography tells the story of the Waner brothers from their lives in Oklahoma through their long playing careers and later years. It is also the story of two American eras: the Roaring Twenties and the Depression years. Paul amassed 3,152 hits, and his .333 lifetime average ranks among the highest ever in the game. Lloyd, a lifetime .316 hitter, collected 2,459 hits, and had it not been for health problems, he might have cleared the 3,000 hit milestone as well. Together, they were baseball heroes.
