Summary

Summary

A lavish volume chronicling the history of baseball's ultimate annual event, featuring anecdotes, lore, trivia, photographs-and all the stats fans cherish.

THE WORLD SERIES combines lively commentary with thorough statistics to tell the story of every Fall Classic ever played, from the inaugural 1903 contest between the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Boston Red Sox to the Subway Series of 2000 that pitted the Yankees against their crosstown rivals, the New York Mets.

The author's historical research has uncovered a wealth of little-known facts and stories from each series, along with unforgettable tales involving baseball's most legendary players and managers. Every key moment is included, along with game-by-game line scores and series box scores-including stats for every player who ever appeared in a World Series game! Beautiful photographs bring each contest to life and illustrate the evolution of the great American pastime. Special sections highlight the Fall Classic's greatest (and not-so-great) performers and performances over the years, including the top 10 World Series home runs and the 10 most shocking Series upsets.
