“This gorgeous, eye-popping survey clearly bats clean-up”—
Bill Ott, Booklist
"Captures the spirit and passion of championship baseball.”—The Boston Globe "One of the most informative and entertaining books on the 'Fall Classic.' This well-written, well-researched book should appeal to baseball fans.”—Library Journal "Chock-full of wonderful vintage photos.”—Publishers Weekly The ultimate homage to the biggest event in America’s pastime—now updated to include the 2005 and 2006 World Series and additions to the already-bulging stats section in the back of the book. Written by noted baseball historian Eric Enders, this large-format, year-by-year, encyclopedic volume is the most detailed reference on the Series ever published. It’s packed with fascinating sidebars and hundreds of remarkable photographs of legends like Ruth, Jackson, and Bonds at play, as well as candid behind-the-scenes shots and breathtaking panoramic park views. With this comprehensive play-by-play, fans can relive a century’s worth of heartstopping action, unforgettable performances, and human drama. “The photographic selection…is superior, even inspired, and Enders’s research yields many original findings. But, perhaps most important, his prose captures the spirit and passion of championship baseball.” —Bill Nowlin, The Boston Globe
