Bushville wins! : the wild saga of the 1957 Milwaukee Braves and the screwballs, sluggers, and beer swiggers who canned the New York Yankees and changed baseball by John Klima ( Book )
2 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"From 1949-1958, the New York Yankees won the World Series seven times. And in 1957, the last team anybody would have thought of to challenge New York City's baseball supremacy would have been Milwaukee. But who better to beat the Yankees than the Midwest guys at the corner bar? The Braves became America's team, a happy band where color and the Cold War didn't matter, where the Cold One created the close bond between the fans and the team. Young sluggers Hank Aaron and Eddie Mathews proved that brotherhood meant as much as home runs. Legendary pitcher Warren Spahn teamed with Yankee-killer Lew Burdette for a climactic finish. 'Bushville' was ready to strike a blow for the rest of America, and the Milwaukee Braves were about to turn the sports world upside down"--
Pitched battle : 35 of baseball's greatest duels from the mound by John Klima ( Book )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Pitching duels are the essence of baseball competition - they require great measures of patience and fundamentals, and take the best one pitcher has to offer and give him a loss he does not deserve. When good pitchers alternately take the mound and remove the game from the batters' hands, spectators are on the edges of their seats."
