Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is a biography of three men, now all but forgotten, who spoke to America at a time when baseball was just beginning to confront issues of race and ethnicity. These three veteran pitchers led the way to five consecutive World Championships, with a team that didn?t have a single offensive leader in any category during those five years. These players on the New York City baseball team came from different worlds, but shared a quiet and deep communion with each other, and became lifelong friends over a span of five years. This team made many special moments in America and rewrote baseball history during these five years.

Synopsis:

When the 1949-1953 New York Yankees won an astounding five consecutive World Series, they did it without the offensive firepower that characterized so many of their championship teams before and after. The franchise came to rely instead on three aging pitchers, an unlikely trio that won 255 games during the five-year championship run.

This book focuses on the close relationship and quiet achievement of Allie Reynolds, Vic Raschi and Eddie Lopat. Soon after Robinson and the cross-town Dodgers had publicly confronted the issues of race and ethnicity, these men from very different backgrounds--Creek Indian, Italian and Polish--established a deep communion with each other, became lifelong friends, and over a handful of years re-wrote baseball history.
