Hall of Famer Charles Albert Bender has been the subject of renewed interest in recent years, as researchers have usefully described his experiences as an American Indian in a game played mostly by whites. Lost in the discussion, however, are Bender's accomplishments on the mound, where he was one of the great pitchers in an age famous for pitching. This biography redirects the conversation, turning it back to the player and his career, which began and ended in the deadball era. New attention is also given to his time in minors and to his days after major league stardom, when he worked as a coach and a scout.
