Nineteen Ninety-Eight was the greatest season in baseball history.

Recommends it for: typical sports fans
Shelves: bookz
so this book is written just like the standard form of commentary that you find in televised professional sports...lots of superlatives that don't really mean anything...it talks about the 98 season and how it was much more than just the Sosa/McGuire homerun race...so I was expecting a lot of statistical analysis and insightful commentary, yet it was more just "______ is the best 2nd baseman of his era bullshit". Read this if you consider yourself a typical American sports fan.

The authors have taken 39 chapters to explain why 1998 was the perfect baseball season. Each chapter is dedicated to a player, manager, team, or event that made this a special season. Most of us just remember the Sosa/McGwire home run race but this book shows us the other outstanding events that were taking place during this year.
