Roger Angell's chronicle of baseball's most fascinating and unforgettable years Classic New Yorker sportswriter Roger Angell calls 1972 to 1976 "the most important half-decade in the history of the game." The early to mid-1970s brought unprecedented changes to America's ancient pastime: astounding performances by Nolan Ryan and Hank Aaron; the intensity of the "best-ever" 1975 World Series between the Cincinnati Reds and the Boston Red Sox; the changes growing from bitter and extended labor strikes and lockouts; and the vast new influence of network television on the game. Angell, always a fan as well as a writer, casts a knowing but noncynical eye on these events, offering a fresh perspective to baseball's continuing appeal during this brilliant and transformative era.
