"When baseball went to war is the dramatic and unforgettable story of how a generation of sports stars selflessly gave up the playing field for the battlefield and, in the process, became heroes of a different kind. You will read about the amazing wartime experiences of players such as Ted Williams, Bob Feller, Dom DiMaggio, Jerry Coleman, Lou Brissie, Moe Berg, and many others. In the process, you will gain a better understanding of why these young men joined the war effort and learn about the hardships they endured during and after the conflict. In other chapters you will explore a different side of the war, thanks to fascinating stories about Negro League veterans, Japanese-American internment-camp ballplayers, and women playing professional baseball during wartime. Finally, you will learn about the continuing importance of baseball to today's soldiers fighting in the Middle East"--Jacket

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 34 libraries worldwide
Commemorating the 10th anniversary of the Boston Red Sox' unprecedented championship run in the fall of 2004, this guide takes fans behind the scenes and inside the dugout, bullpen, and clubhouse to reveal to baseball fans how it happened, as it happened. The book highlights how, during a span of just 76 hours, the Red Sox won four do-or-die games against their arch rivals, the New York Yankees, to qualify for the World Series and complete the greatest comeback in baseball history. Then the Red Sox steamrolled through the World Series, sweeping the St. Louis Cardinals in four games, capturing their first championship since 1918. Don't Let Us Win Tonight is brimming with revealing quotes from Boston's front office personnel, coaches, medical staff, and players, including Kevin Millar talking about his infectious optimism and the team's pregame ritual of drinking whiskey, Dave Roberts revealing how he prepared to steal the most famous base of his career, and Dr. William Morgan describing the radical surgery he performed on Curt Schilling's right ankle. The ultimate keepsake for any Red Sox fan, this is the 2004 team in their own words

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 27 libraries worldwide
"With the "Curse" a distant memory, the Boston Red Sox are the first team this century to win three World Series titles. Before 2004, an obnoxious Yankees fan might have smirked: The Red Sox in the World Series? The world's shortest book!" In actual fact, the Red Sox have played in twelve World Series and won eight. Even during their stories 86-year drought, the Sox took four Series to Game Seven before losing. Lavishly illustrated, From the Babe to the Beards is the result of another collaboration by Bill Nowlin and Jim Prime--each with more than a dozen Sox books to their credit. The book includes full game accounts of every one of the 74 Series games played (to date) and profiles a significant player from each game. Supplemented with dozens of photos and line scores from every game, the book will provide a solid and eminently readable companion as the team prepares for additional Series in the years to come"--

Drama and pride in the gateway city : the 1964 St. Louis Cardinals ( file )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
By 1964 the storied St. Louis Cardinals had gone seventeen years without so much as a pennant. Things began to turn around in 1953, when August A. Busch Jr. bought the team and famously asked where all the black players were. Under the leadership of men like Bing Devine and Johnny Keane, the Cardinals began signing talented players regardless of color, and slowly their star started to rise again. Drama and Pride in the Gateway City commemorates the team that Bing Devine built, the 1964 team that prevailed in one of the tightest three-way pennant races of all time and then went on to win the World Series, beating the New York Yankees in the full seven games. All the men come alive in these pages--pitchers Ray Sadecki and Bob Gibson, players Lou Brock, Curt Flood, and Bobby Shantz, manager Johnny Keane, his coaches, the Cardinals' broadcasters, and Bill White, who would one day run the entire National League--along with the dramatic events that made the 1964 Cardinals such a memorable club in a memorable year
