The Era, Roger Kahn's most important book since The Boys of Summer, chronicles the golden age of modern baseball by following the Yankees, the Giants, and the Dodgers from 1947 - the year of racial integration - through 1957, when the Giants and the Dodgers moved to California. During these eleven seasons the three teams dominated the game. Those years, when baseball was America's unrivaled national sport, saw the integration of the major leagues, the dominance of the Yankees, the arrival of television on the sports scene, and the ascendancy of the United States as a world power. Roger Kahn's keen eye and sharp pen bring it all to life again.

An opinionated account of the evolution of baseball's central event, by baseball's most celebrated chronicler.

Here for the first time is the story of that battle and the people who changed the course of baseball by throwing one. Roger Kahn investigates not only grips, speeds, and tactics, but also knowledge, maturity, and competitive fire. With the help of some of baseball's greatest pitchers and pitching minds-from Christy Mathewson, Don Drysdale, Bob Gibson, and Bruce Sutter to today's reigning pitching coach, Leo Mazzone-as well as his own deep knowledge of the game, Roger Kahn speaks with authority, and with the authorities, bringing new light to baseball's most pivotal contest. His acute sense of how people make history makes The Head Game a delightful and enlightening tour of baseball through the pitcher's eyes.
