Description
From its inception in 1954 to the present day, Sports Illustrated has chronicled the compelling ups and downs of our national pastime. This collection is a literary Hall of Fame worthy of Cooperstown, bringing together the stories of baseball's greatest heroes (Mickey Mantle, Ted Williams, Sandy Koufax), villains (Ty Cobb, Pete Rose, Marge Schott), and characters (Casey Stengel, Max Patkin, Yogi Berra); its legendary quests (the home run chases of Roger Maris, Hank Aaron, Mark McGwire, and Barry Bonds); and the most thrilling pennant races. The selection of writers is worthy of the subject, with contributions by Roy Blount Jr., Frank Deford, Mark Kram, George Plimpton, Peter Gammons, and Tom Verducci.
