Great Baseball Books

The Unforgettable Season
Fleming, G. H.
Bison, 2006 (orig. 1981)

The thrilling 1908 baseball pennant races, including arguably the most controversial game ever played (the "Merkle" game), through the eyes and words of the reporters of the time. The author takes the reader day by day, extracting accounts from many newspapers, including those of legendary sportswriters. Fleming used a similar approach to books on the 1927 Yankees (Murderers' Row: The 1927 New York Yankees, the Greatest Team in the History of Baseball) and the 1934 St. Louis Cardinals (The Dizziest Season: The Gashouse Gang Chases the Pennant)
