TRAVERS HITS HOME RUNS IN THE TRADITION OF ANGELL, JORDAN AND MURRAY!
Steve Travers is as fine a sportswriter as there is in America. He has great wit and literary style, and his books are always chock full of fabulous anecdotes and information. I have long been a fan of his work, which reminds me of Pat Jordan, Jim Murray and Roger Angell. I highly recommend this and all his books. I can't put his books down, they read like novels; fast-paced and excellent from start to finish. - BRAD BEEDLE
Wow, do I ever remember this season, and author Steve Travers has re-created it in all its splendor and glory. It is like so much of his work far more than just a "baseball book." It is social commentary; New York as an allegory of Rome; the Giants' struggling to strike a racial balance of blacks, whites, Latinos and Southerners; the Dodgers as "Hollywood's team." The description of the meltdown of the L.A. clubhouse after they blew it, with Walt Alston cloistered in his office as if outlasting the night like a "scene from NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD," is worth the price of the book alone! - MIKE WOODSON
