Overview

"What is baseball's greatest game?" That's baseball's most asked question, the National Pastime's national pastime and the most discussed topic in all of sports.

Here, for the first time, one of sport's greatest writers brings you fifty of those games, including "The Shot Heard 'Round the World"; Babe Ruth's "Called Shot"; Bucky Dent's home run; Hank Aaron's and Pete Rose's record breaking games; Reggie's three World Series homers; perfect games by Don Larsen and Harvey Haddix; Bill Mazeroski's home run; Carlton Fisk's home run; and 40 other great games.

They're all ranked in order of greatness. And they all give you the "why" as well as the "who" and the "what". You'll find out about the feudin', the fightin', and the fussin'; the front-office schemes; the locker room dreams; and principle players' states of mind and body.

This is the book for anyone who appreciates baseball, history, plain old good writing, and more than a touch of controversy. (Did Babe Ruth "call the shot" or didn't he?) It is also one of the greatest books ever written on baseball. It's Baseball's 50 Greatest Games.
