    Nothing New Here

    Basic rehash of the 1973 season, centered around the A's and Reggie Jackson, the Mets and Willie Mays, Hammerin' Hank and George Steinbrenner. Not awful by any means, but no new research or new angles. Disappointing.

    Good book easy read

    I liked it. Blew right through it. Brought back memories of my childhood. Everything in this book took place when I was about eight years old. Gave me a new insight about what was going on in major league baseball in 1973. Easy to read and very informitive.I would recomend it to any baseball history buff.

    Great Baseball Memories

    The author has done a truly great job with this book. This brings 1973 and the Major League Stars to life once more. I thought I knew most of the facts from this timeframe, but I was wrong. Great stories on Henry Aaron's struggles with racism during a solid 40-homer season and .301 batting average. Willie Mays' struggles and Reggie Jackson's early Mr. October heroics made for interesting reading as well. Add Pete Rose '.338 BA, 230 Hits, '73 MVP' and Bud Harrelson's fight during the 1973 N.L. Playoffs and other facts, and you have a fine book by a solid author. For those of you who grew up as Major League Baseball fans during the 1960s, 1970s, I highly recommend this book - brings back a smile, a great read, and some wonderful memories of some truly great superstars, dynasties, and an era that is long gone. I recommend this book for today's fans as well - in order to allow them to learn about a very pivotal year in MLB's history that affected the sport's future.
