George Plimpton (ed). Here is the best writing ever, fiction & nonfiction, about the moment a home run is hit. From a memoir of Ted Williams’s 1946 All-Star Game homer to a fictional visit Babe Ruth made to Lake Wobegon; from Mark McGwire’s 69th & 70th home runs to Hank Aaron’s pursuit of the Babe’s record; from Roger Maris’s 61st home run to the truth about Bobby Thompson & the famed “Shot Heard ‘Round the World,” the book offers the most complete, most compelling & most authoritative take on that moment the wood hits the ball, & the crowd rises to its feet. Includes writing by: Don DeLillo, Grantland Rice, Bernard Malamud, Red Smith, Rick Telander, John Updike, Garrison Keillor, Robert W. Creamer, Paul Gallico, & many more.
