Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is a wonderful book! Tim Wendel is a veteran baseball writer and he brings all of his skills to bear in "Down to the Last Pitch". Wendel makes the reader feel like they have been transported in time back to 1991. He does an excellent job of setting the stage for the 1991 World Series by describing the larger trends at taking place in baseball and in American life in 1991. The interviews with the participants in the 1991 World Series and with other notable baseball figures provide much new, original research. I found myself highly engrossed in the book - once I started reading it, I didn't want to put it down. Enjoy!
Excellent . A great World Series and a great book.
