Description
 
Danny Peary (ed); Lawrence S. Ritter (in). The inside story of the best years of baseball history -- as told by the men who played the game, 1947-1964. It was a fascinating era which began when Jackie Robinson & Larry Doby pioneered baseball integration; & it ended when the N.Y. Yankees lost their dominance of the game. This was the era of Yogi Berra, Mickey Mantle, Roy Campanella, &, for the first time, baseball games were televised -- live. The collective voices of 65 ballplayers tell the story of the era: from pitching no-hitters & arguing with managers to alcoholism, groupies, race problems, salary negotiations, & fights on & off the field. This volume tells the real story of a wonderful era of baseball history -- in the words of the only men who could tell it, those who made it live for us. Photos.
