The richest volume ever compiled on the subject, this lavishly illustrated tribute to a century of baseball's Fall Classic features anecdotes, lore, historic photos-and all of the stats fans cherish.

Newly revised and fully updated through the 2002 season, THE WORLD SERIES combines lively discussion with thorough statistics to tell the story of every World Series ever played, from the 1903 battle between the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Detroit Tigers to the Subway Series of 2000 that pitted the Yankees against the Mets as well as the eagerly awaited battle for the pennant in October 2002. The author's historical research uncovers all the little-known facts and stories from each game, along with baseball legends and unforgettable moments. In addition, detailed box scores and line scores include the statistics that baseball fans covet, with every number for every player who ever appeared in a World Series game. Beautiful photographs bring every game to life, illustrating the evolution of the game.
