    A Good Read for All Baseball Fans

    I planned on reading "Game Six" here recently in honor of the baseball postseason upon us, and it did the job. Mark Frost gives a good insight on what many consider the best game ever played in the best World Series ever played, arguably. The research and player insight is good and his outlining of the entire game is equally as good. While telling the story, he gives the reader a unique read and something I've never seen before in a book. What I mean is, it's kind of like watching a baseball game on TV then having the commentators give you a history on each player that comes to the plate while still giving the play by play. However, at times the book is a little choppy and the conclusion in the end is way to long. A little less about certain figures would of been okay with me. Still, the book leaves an impression on you the way Frost lays out the story and makes you appreciate the way baseball was in the 70's and how much you wish it was today.

    Excellent Story Rich in History and Facts

    This was a very enjoyable read especially having been an 18 year old BoSox fan during this series. It was a very compelling and tightly woven story of the game, the players, the league and all it effected before, during and after. It also did a great job of bringing the history of the game together with many interesting facts and stories without slowing down the basic story of "the greatest World Series Game ever played"

    Great Book on Classic '75 Series

    This comes from a die-hard Yankee fan. I was 13 years old during the 1975 World Series, did not at all like the Big Red Machine and acutally rooted for the Sox to win. For all the great Yankee teams over the years, these two teams gave a thrilling World Series to all fans. Frost captures perfectly not only the game, but the players and their individual stories as well. It was a nostalgic read for me for sure, but made that much better because the author committed to providing a book as fine as that 1975 series deserved. Whether you are a fan of one of these teams, a baseball fan in general or just want to revisit this particular series - go out, buy the book and enjoy.

    Well told tale of an epic game

    Frost weaves the telling of this epic game along with mini-autobiographies of numerous characters. It's at it's best, when telling stories of Luis Tiant, Sparky Anderson, etc... but drifts a bit. Overall, an enjoyable read.

    Great Sports Book

    Mark Frost did an excellent job of writing this book. He gives enought background information on the players and baseball itself to help readers not familiar with baseball in the '70s to understand it. A great book for sports fans!
