9780061582554: The Machine: A Hot Team, a Legendary Season, and a Heart-stopping World Series: The Story of the 1975 Cincinnati Reds

From 1972 to 1976, the Cincinnati Reds—the franchise known as the Big Red Machine—dominated the National League, winning four division crowns, three league pennants, and two World Series titles. But their 1975 season was the stuff of sports legend.

In The Machine, award-winning sports writer Joe Posnanski captures all of the passion and tension, drama and glory of a baseball team considered to be one of the best ever to take the field. Featuring a who's who of stars—including Pete Rose, Ken Griffey, Joe Morgan, Johnny Bench, Tony Perez, George Foster, Cesar Geronimo, Dave Concepcion, and Hall of Fame manager Sparky Anderson—The Machine brings to vivid life all the hopes and excitement, fireworks and controversy of a remarkable team's extraordinary year in a rollicking thrill-ride of a real-sports story.

Book Description William Morrow Paperbacks, 2010. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: '[Posnanski] can flat-out write. How good is his book? It's right there with Robert Creamer's The Babe. . . . It's so good we'd carry Posnanski's luggage through La Guardia on the travel day before Game 3 of the World Series. . . . A word of caution. This book should not be read on an airplane unless you want a flight attendant offering you Kleenex.' (Toronto Sun on THE SOUL OF BASEBALL).
