Miracle Men: Hershiser, Gibson, and the Improbable 1988 Dodgers


Miracle Men: Hershiser, Gibson, and the Improbable 1988 Dodgers Cover



Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The 1988 World Series champion Los Angeles Dodgers are best remembered for Kirk Gibsons dramatic home run, Orel Hershisers pitching dominance, and manager Tommy Lasordas masterfully corny motivation, but there was much more that made the season memorable, bittersweet, and controversial, and this book explains it all. Using hundreds of hours of new interviews with players, coaches, broadcasters, and fans and combing through newspapers and magazines, Josh Suchon takes a new generation of Dodgers fans back to their memorable 1988 championship season. From the end of Don Sutton's Hall of Fame career and the memorable 46-day stretch of pitching by Hershiser that hasnt been equaled since to unlikely playoff heroes Mike Scioscia, Mickey Hatcher, and Mike Davis, Miracle Men encapsulates the fever and fervor that surrounded the team and the city of Los Angeles in the summer and fall of 1988.
