Mike Lupica (au). A funny, moving, unconventional exploration of a glorious baseball season. In 1998, the conversation of the country was about baseball. Lupica recaptures that season, telling how Roger Maris’s boyhood best friend in Fargo, ND, watches McGwire hit 62; Kerry Wood’s high school assistant coach in Texas refuses to believe the reports of Wood’s strikeout record, until the phone starts ringing; Joe DiMaggio talks as he watches the Yankees have the kind of year he always had; Yogi Berra watches highlights of David Wells’s perfect game & remembers the perfect game he caught from Don Larsen -- all the boys of summer come alive in special ways. It is also about fathers & sons -- about the golden thread that stretches through baseball.
