The most amazing baseball games happened when fall arrived and the boys of summer played for the championship. During those two weeks in October (now November), time stood still. Nothing else mattered. This anthology, now available in paperback, captures the best and worst of times as teams battled for the glory. It features timeless writing by such renowned authors as Stephen Jay Gould, Roger Angell, David Halberstam, Stephen King, and more! Ranging from Robert W. Creamer's look at Casey Stengel's 1923 inside-the-park home run (1923) to Jack Curry's thoughts on the 1994's cancelled series, Glory in the Fall will delight every fan of the game.
