Here's a look at 30 achievements by baseball players - not one-shot deals, but more like exclusive clubs such as Triple Crown winners or 50-save seasons. Lots of work obviously went into this, but it's a difficult task to make this sort of project come to life.

Synopsis

The Immaculate Inning shines a light on the miracle of baseball’s endless possibility—the way that on any given day, someone (maybe a star, or maybe a scrub) could perform the rarest of single-game feats or cap off a seemingly unobtainable chase for a record. Covering a selection of the most unusual, significant, and rare feats in baseball history, both in the context of single-day (and sometimes even single-play) events and those that require a longer streak or a full season’s excellence to reach or complete, the book clearly defines how each task is amassed, provides historical background, and tells riveting stories of the ballplayers that did the unthinkable.
