9781519786647: The Ultimate Fan Guide to 1960s Baseball

One miracle opened the 1960s. Another miracle closed it. Between Bill Mazeroski’s epic home run in the 1960 World Series and the New York Mets’ stunning upset in October 1969, it was a baseball decade of unparalleled excitement and drama, of record-shattering performances and unforgettable stars. It was baseball at its best. Power hitting versus power pitching. When complete games were routine for baseball’s best pitchers, and games rarely lasted three hours. The 1960s were when records were shattered without the help of advanced chemistry. When there were no free agents or designated hitters, and beards were banned. When World Series games were played in the slanting daylight of October afternoons. The Ultimate Fan Guide to 1960s Baseball takes you inside the game as it was played by Mays and Mantle and Koufax and Gibson ... and their contemporaries (they had no peers). It recreates the seasons, the teams and the players who made the 1960s baseball’s true golden age. Enjoy the memories.
