In this wonderful page-turner, veteran sports journalist Mike Vaccaro brings to life a bygone era in cinematic and intimate detail - and re-creates the magic and suspense of the world's first classic series. Despite a major presidential election, the near-assassination of Teddy Roosevelt, and the most sensational trial of the young century, baseball dominated front-page headlines in October 1912. The Boston Red Sox and the New York Giants of that year - two of the finest ball clubs that had ever been assembled - went head-to-head in a thrilling eight-game battle that ultimately elevated the World Series from a regional October novelty to a national obsession

6 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The New York Yankees. The Boston Red Sox. For a hundred years, no two teams have locked horns as fiercely or as frequently-- and no two seasons frame the colossal battle more perfectly than 2003 and 2004 ... With the razor-sharp instincts that have made him a top sports journalist, Mike Vaccaro delves into the history of the rollicking rivalry: a vicious collision in 1903 that draws first blood; the era of Babe Ruth and his legendary trade from the Red Sox to the Yankees; the golden age of DiMaggio and Williams; the unstoppable power of Mantle and Maris; the heart and soul of Fisk and Yastrzemski versus Piniella and Munson; and the modern era of dueling owners, skyrocketng payrolls, and a renewed rivalry that attracts sell-out crowds even to Yankees-Red Sox spring training games"--Container
