Spahn, Sain, and Teddy Ballgame: Boston's (almost) Perfect Baseball Summer of 1948

Overview

In 1948, the Boston Braves won the NL pennant and went to the World Series. The Red Sox lost a one-game playoff to Cleveland. That loss prevented a Braves/Sox Fall Classic. 40 members of the Society for American Baseball Research have contributed biographies of all 72 Red Sox and Braves players and numerous other essays. Included are dozens of previously unpublished photos and a Diamond Mind simulation of a Braves/Sox Streetcar Series.
