Overview

This is the story of a town's love affair with its team and the colorful characters who have worn the Rochester flannels over the years. Taking us back to the early nineteenth century when the game was played in the meadows and the streets of Rochester, New York, the authors retrace the careers of the managers and players who honed their skills in the old ballpark at 500 Norton Street. The many greats who played for the Red Wings - Stan Musial, Bob Gibson, Boog Powell, Eddie Murray, Cal Ripken, Jr., and Jim Palmer - are among those brought to life in a story rich with quirky performances and poignant moments.
