This is the story of one of the all-time great teams of major league baseball, the 1957 Milwaukee Braves. The Braves boasted a lineup packed with power and a pitching staff anchored by three aces. Four future Hall of Famers led the team to the National League pennant, and a fidgety right-hander pitched the Braves past the mighty Yankees in the World Series. Covering the Braves' magical season in remarkable detail, the author chronicles the winning streaks and the tough stretches, comments on the key transactions and costly injuries, and recalls the unforgettable players (such as Bob "Hurricane" Hazle) and the events (the Shoe Polish Incident) that have since become part of baseball lore.
