Customer Review

on October 7, 2009
First, in the interest of truth in packaging, I was living in Cincinnati in 1975 and watched Game Six on TV.
After Fisk hit the home run, I went and woke my wife up to tell her that she had just missed the greatest baseball game ever. She was not amused.

This is fine book. Frost not only thoroughly chronicles the historic game, but interweaves the game with all that was going on in the world at the same time. He also weaves a lot of baseball culture and history into the telling of the story. For instance, even though I have read a ton of baseball writing, I had never heard that there were significant rumors that the first World Series was fixed.

Frost documents the lives of the players involved, and tells not only how they got to Fenway Park that evening in October, but also what happened to all of them.

This book has the makings of a classic baseball book not unlike The Boys of Summer. If you enjoy baseball even a little bit you will enjoy it. Or, even if you don't, but like a really well written small piece of sports history, you will like Game Six.
