Summary:
The inside story behind a crucial chapter in Red Sox lore-and a turbulent time in a troubled city. George Steinbrenner called it the greatest game in the history of American sports: on a bright October day in 1978, the Boston Red Sox met the New York Yankees for an epic playoff game that would send one team to the World Series, and leave the other cursed for almost a quarter of a century. In this book, award-winning sports columnist Bill Reynolds tells the story of the team and the players at this pivotal moment. This cultural history takes readers through the social issues that divided Boston that summer, and masterfully depicts their influence on one game beyond the realm of sports--From publisher description.
