Compelling material from a historical standpoint if not riveting in its writing, fans of DiMaggio or Williams should be the real target audience.
Makes you feel like you were there with the players.
Baseball fans will love this book.I hate to part with this book,however my wife says I have too many books.Baseball at it's finest.
Really a very interesting historical look back on the 1949 baseball season, mostly focusing on the Yankees verses the Boston Red Sox. It includes thoughts on all the important players on both teams including DiMaggio and Williams, and some lesser known but important players; notably Dominic DiMaggio, Joe's brother who was on The Red Sox. It also goes into discussions about the owners and coaches of both teams, sportswriters of the times, Toots Shor, the restaurant owner and other interesting characters. If you like historical baseball books, you will like this book. Also, I am female, and I love this kind of stuff, so it is a good read for both sexes who like baseball!
