   schema:description "The story of this unlikely meeting between crosstown rivals - dubbed the "Streetcar Series" because so many fans took the trolley to Sportsman's Park - is told here for the first time." "Mining a treasure trove of coverage, including on-the-spot commentary by the Hall of Fame sportswriter Bob Broeg, the authors bring this contest between baseball's David and Goliath to life, giving readers a sense of what this suspenseful six-day series must have meant both to those on the homefront and U.S. servicemen around the world. A marvel of American sportsmanship, patriotism, and boyish innocence, the Streetcar Series will forever be remembered as the best and the "worst" of an era long past."--Jacket."@en ;

Adding to the drama, these misfits were facing the fabled St. Louis Cardinals and their mvp, Stan Musial, one of the greatest hitters in baseball history." ;
