"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

"With the "Curse" a distant memory, the Boston Red Sox are the first team this century to win three World Series titles.

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.

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
