The Greatest Game
The Greatest Game The Yankees, the Red Sox, and the Playoff of '78 By Bradley, Richard, 1964 August 24- Book - 2008 | 1st Free Press hardcover ed.

although it helps to be a fan of baseball, the Red Sox, or the Yankees (but especially of the latter), and although the greatest-game tag has been applied to sports from football to golf, I think you will appreciate the day-to-day detail of the doings of the baseball teams in question-from training camp to the regular season to the "greatest game" itself. of note is the background info given on the [in]famous at-bat of the much-maligned Bucky Dent. there have been other playoff games, but perhaps none has proven more heartbreaking (still!) than this particular game between these two rivals, given especially the amazing comeback of the October Men (the Yanks) & the chaos that manager Billy Martin engendered.
