Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From 1972 to 1976, the Cincinnati Reds—the franchise known as the Big Red Machine—dominated the National League, winning four division crowns, three league pennants, and two World Series titles. But their 1975 season was the stuff of sports legend.

In The Machine, award-winning sports writer Joe Posnanski captures all of the passion and tension, drama and glory of a baseball team considered to be one of the best ever to take the field. Featuring a who's who of stars—including Pete Rose, Ken Griffey, Joe Morgan, Johnny Bench, Tony Perez, George Foster, Cesar Geronimo, Dave Concepcion, and Hall of Fame manager Sparky Anderson—The Machine brings to vivid life all the hopes and excitement, fireworks and controversy of a remarkable team's extraordinary year in a rollicking thrill-ride of a real-sports story.

Synopsis:

National award-winning columnist Posnanski looks at the 1975 World Series-winning season of one of baseball's greatest teams--the Cincinnati Reds.
