From Library Journal
Some would claim that nothing in baseball is as exciting as the season finale, with two teams tied for first playing a decisive series or game to see which one advances to the post-season championship. The author tells us that this has happened only eight times in the last 120 years, so these games are truly special. Parker, a writer and publications consultant, is especially adept at detailing such classics as the 1951 Brooklyn Dodgers and New York Giants match won by a dramatic home run. He ably uses interviews, box scores, and statistics to help set the scene. For informed baseball fans.
