TEN INNINGS AT WRIGLEY: The Wildest Ballgame Ever, with Baseball on the Brink.
Edition: First printing.
New York: Henry Holt, (2019) dj. Hardcover first edition - A great book about baseball - the story of "a legendary 1979 slugfest between the Chicago Cubs and the Philadelphia Phillies, full of runs, hits, and subplots, at the tipping point of a new era in baseball history. It was a Thursday at Chicagos Wrigley Field, mostly sunny with the wind blowing out. Nobody expected an afternoon game between the Philadelphia Phillies and Chicago Cubs on May 17, 1979, to be much more than a lazy early-season contest matching two teams heading in opposite directions the first-place Phillies and the Cubs, those lovable losers until they combined for thirteen runs in the first inning. 'The craziest game ever,' one player called it. 'And then the second inning started'." Photographs, notes on sources, index. 253 pp. ISBN: 978-1250182036.
