Every baseball fan has a favorite World Series memory, and this glorious celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Fall Classic is jam-packed with stories of unforgettable October moments, revealed in new and surprising ways, often in the words of those who were there watching or playing the games. What makes this book a standout-and tremendous fun-is its riveting immediacy. It is as if we were sitting in the stands at each game. The outspoken views of the author are certain to provoke the kind of heated discussions that are the lifeblood of every passionate baseball fan. (Watch the sparks fly when fans debate Wallace's choices for the 10 best Series...and the 10 worst!)

Relive the crushing 1919 Black Sox scandal, from the perspective of a disconsolate fan. Experience the frenzied excitement of Enos Slaughter's mad dash home in Game 7 of the 1946 World Series, as seen by the players involved. Listen in as Pete Hamill recalls the ecstasy of the Brooklyn Dodgers' long-awaited 1955 crown, and as Stephen King describes his own Series memories. Splendidly illustrated with thrilling action shots and Series ephemera, World Series: An Opinionated Chronicle captures the tension and catharsis, agony and joy, of events that come alive once again in this vivid retelling.
