This is a book about young men who learned to play baseball during the 1930s and 1940s, and then went on to play for one of the most exciting major-league ball clubs ever fielded, the team that broke the colour barrier with Jackie Robinson. It is a book by and about a sportswriter who grew up near Ebbets Field, and who had the good fortune in the 1950s to cover the Dodgers for the Herald Tribune. This is a book about what happened to Jackie, Carl Erskine, Pee Wee Reese, and the others when their glory days were behind them. In short, it is a book fathers and sons and about the making of modern America.

Review:

'Perhaps the most celebated baseball book of the last 50 years.'



'I cannot conceive that this year, nor next year, nor the year after that, will produce a more important book - a better written one, a more consistently engrossing one than this portraited of the Brooklyn Dodgers of the 1950s, as they were in the sinew and swiftness of their youth and as they are now.'
