The Era starts with Jackie Robinson taking the field for the Dodgers, the first black man ever to play major league baseball. Joe DiMaggio is brooding after an off season. The Giants languish under the bland leadership of genial Mel Ott. The decade that follows witnesses some of the most extraordinary events in the history of sport: the brilliant success of Robinson, followed by the signing of Roy Campanella and Don Newcombe; the controversial retirement of the Yankee Clipper; the bursts to stardom of Yogi Berra, Bobby Thomson, Mickey Mantle, Duke Snider, and Willie Mays; Leo Durocher's move from Brooklyn to New York and his building of "my kind of team"; and the wizardly managing of the man Kahn calls Field Marshal Casey von Stengel. The Yankees play in nine out of eleven World Series. The great career of Branch Rickey rises, peaks, and winds down. A little-known collection lawyer named Walter O'Malley obtains control of the Brooklyn Dodgers

The author of The Boys of Summer gives an opinionated account of the evolution of baseball's central event-the psychological battle between a pitcher and a batter known as the "head game". Kahn investigates not only grips, speeds, and tactics, but also knowledge, maturity, and competitive fire. Illustrations throughout. An opinionated account of the evolution of baseball's central event, by baseball's most celebrated chronicler. Beyond the techniques and training, baseball is essentially a pitcher and a batter and the psychological battle between them-the head game. Here for the first time is the story of that battle and the people who changed the course of baseball by throwing one. Roger Kahn investigates not only grips, speeds, and tactics, but also knowledge, maturity, and competitive fire. With the help of some of baseball's greatest pitchers and pitching minds-from Christy Mathewson, Don Drysdale, Bob Gibson, and Bruce Sutter to today's reigning pitching coach, Leo Mazzone-as well as his own deep knowledge of the game, Roger Kahn speaks with authority, and with the authorities, bringing new light to baseball's most pivotal contest. His acute sense of how people make history makes The Head Game a delightful and enlightening tour of baseball through the pitcher's eyes
