The story of perhaps the greatest team in baseball history, narrated against a background of one of the game's most remarkable seasons—an original work of history based on considerable research. Mr. Tofel presents a good many usually overlooked findings and sets the sport in its social and historical context. The best book about a single baseball team in a single year I have ever read. —Donald Honig
