Abstract:

In 1967, the Boston Red Sox go from losers to winners, with Carl Yastrzemski leading the way. The Sox take the pendant, but lose the World Series to the St. Louis cardinals and their fearsome pitcher, Bob Gibson. The turbulence of the 60s and the rise of popularity of football causes many to question the revelancy of the game. Now the game is about to be radically transformed by the first successful attempt by the baseball players to organize into a union while Curt Flood's attempt to escape the reserve clause is doomed to failure.
