Overview

Heart-Stopping Perfect Games...Mesmerizing No-Hitters...Dominating Strikeout Performances...Excruciating Near Misses...

If life, as someone has said, is a metaphor for baseball, then baseball itself stands in the same relation to the craft of pitching. Pitching is not only the heart and soul of the game-it is also the nerve center of all the action. The pitcher's mound is the center of the baseball diamond, and a new future of unlimited possibilities is created with every pitch.

Nothing captures the connection between fans and baseball like the dramatic energy of a no-hitter or a perfect game. Fans don't blink. Players don't talk. History never forgets. In Unhittable: Reliving the Magic and Drama of Baseball's Best-Pitched Games, readers will be taken on a journey through all the greatest and most dramatic performances by pitchers in the history of baseball-the perfect games, the near-misses, the no-hitters, the 20-strikeout games, and the courageous clutch performances that were the building blocks of Hall of Fame careers.

Officially licensed by Major League Baseball, and including a full 55-minute original DVD program produced by MLB, Unhittable includes features from the game's first-ever pitching gems thrown more than a century ago, explores the pitching feats of baseball's golden era, and showcases modern pitching masterpieces, including 40-year-old Randy Johnson's perfect game in the spring of 2004. Pitching icons such as Nolan Ryan, Bob Gibson, Tom Seaver, and Ron Guidry identify the most memorable games of their careers, and classic moments from Cy Young, Walter Johnson, Carl Hubbell, Bob Feller, Sandy Koufax, and Roger Clemens are also vividly recaptured.

Johnny Vander Meer's incredible back-to-back no-hitters are chronicled in this beautifully designed and richly illustrated book, as is Don Larsen's perfect World Series game and other amazing performances from the Fall Classic. The greatest pitching duels and unforgettable All-Star moments are among the amazing feats described, alongside sections on agonizing near misses and dominating relief pitchers from yesterday and today. Packaged together with MLB's action-packed DVD, Unhittable is as riveting a tribute to the men on the mound as has ever been created.
