A Day in the Bleachersby Arnold Hano
Synopses & Reviews
From the subway ride to the ballpark, through batting practice and warm-ups, to the game-winning home run, A Day in the Bleachers describes inning by inning the strategies, heroics, and ineluctable rhythms of the opening game of the 1954 World Series. Here are the spectacular exploits of the Indians and Giants, and of a young player named Willie Mays, who made the most-talked-about catch in baseball history.
"The best of all the baseball books written from the point of view of the man in the stands." Roger Kahn, from the Introduction
