The transformation of baseball happened during the 1964 baseball season as the old guard, the New York Yankees, turned over the reign of MLB to the St. Louis Cardinals. The old, racist attitude, was losing out to the more proactive Cardinals and the National League. The Senior League lead the way into the new era of MLB. Wonderfully written, well researched and a must read for any baseball fan. Especially important that it is read by those who have no idea about the transformation of baseball from the Negro Leagues/White Leagues to what they see on the field today. Both African Americans and Caucasian baseball fans alike will find this a must read book. It also hints on the introduction of Hispanics to baseball as well.

This book was great. It was probably the second or third best sports book I have ever read. Halberstam is a great writer. I would recommend this book to all baseball fans and essential for Yankee and Cardinal fans. Great insights into a bygone era of baseball. It was very entertaining.

THis is a highly readable classic for fans of Americana. Revolving around the clash of baseball's two teams with the most World Series wins between them, it is heartfelt study of the changing times of America in the 1960s as personified on the sports field. The old and the stodgy as represented by the American League and the Yankees, against the new and brash as represented by the Cardinals. I guess we can all be glad at how the Series turned out:)
