Summary
  • "The dramatic story of a legendary 1979 slugfest between the Chicago Cubs and the Philadelphia Phillies, full of runs, hits, and subplots, at the tipping point of a new era in baseball history"--
  • May 17, 1979. Nobody expected an afternoon game to be much more than a lazy early-season contest matching two teams heading in opposite directions-- the first-place Phillies and those lovable losers, the Cubs. Cook provides a vivid account of a game that saw a combination of thirteen runs in the first inning-- and only got crazier from there. Among those involved: Hall of Famers, a surly slugger, a troubled relief pitcher, and two managers pulling out what was left of their hair. Cook reveals the human stories behind the game-- and how money, muscles and modern statistics were about to change baseball forever. -- adapted from jacket
