    Summary: 
    Chris Von der Ahe knew next to nothing about baseball when he risked his life's savings to found the St. Louis Browns. Yet the German-born beer garden proprietor would become one of the most important--and funniest--figures in the game's history. Von der Ahe picked up the team for one reason--to sell more beer. Then he helped gather a group of ragtag clubs into a maverick new league that would fight the haughty National League.
