This book took me back to the year I graduated from high school and left for college. Enjoyable nostalgic look back at the baseball season and other things going on at the time.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Great detail of eventful year, writing a bit awkward
Silverman has selected an eventful year filled with unusual events and colorful characters. His portraits of owners (esp. Charlie Finley, George Steinbrenner), individual players and team chemistry are excellent. It is among the best researched baseball book in quite a while, filled with behind the scenes details. This could have been a GREAT book except for the amateur writing which is distracting. This flaw can eventually be overcome to bring some good satisfying read that could have been better.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
