Sports and numbers go hand-in-hand—the Dolphins 17–0 season, Wilt Chamberlain’s 100-point game, Joe DiMaggio’s 56-game hitting streak, Tiger Woods shooting -18 at his first Masters—and this book gives fans a golden opportunity to relive the magic moments that have generated the most talked about numbers in sports. Whether it’s an obscure entry like Row 8, Aisle 4, Seat 113 (Steve Bartman’s seat location for the Chicago Cubs 2003 NLCS Game 6) or a more well-known number like 72–10 (the unprecedented NBA season by Michael Jordan and the Bulls), each number has a compelling story tied to that this book explores with fantastic photos, juicy details, and candid insight from the athletes themselves.
