Description
 
Bill Littlefield (ed); Richard A. Johnson (ed). A collection of the best writing about the World Series (WS) in its first 100 years. Also a catalog of the work of some of the most accomplished & entertaining writers of the past century. The WS has drawn many writers who wouldn’t have dreamed of writing about other sports championships. Here you’ll find Jimmy Breslin telling Damon Runyon’s story of how he got the scoop on where Grover Cleveland Alexander spent the first innings of a 7th game he eventually won (it wasn’t the bullpen). Satchel Paige recalls his experience of finally getting to pitch in the Series in 1948. Red Smith writes about Willie Mays’s last hurrah with the Mets in 1973 against the A’s. And Peter Gammons & Roger Angell give their takes on the 2 most famous game sixes of all, 1975 & 1986.
