Product Details

Praise

“A revelation and a page turner, a group character study unequaled in baseball writing since Roger Kahn’s Boys of Summer.”

The New York Times Book Review

 

“Thrilling. . . . captures the enduring impact of the memorable moments that mark our lives.” —The Washington Post Book World

 

“The most comprehensive account ever written of the most famous play in sports history.” —Newsday

 

“This wonderful book is an absolute treasure. A master storyteller, Prager captures the reader from beginning to end.”

—Doris Kearns Goodwin

 

“A delightful book . . . You don’t have to believe that the Giants stole the game to enjoy The Echoing Green. You don’t even have to like baseball. That moment defined a generation.”

The New York Times

 

“Compelling and thoughtful, the book meditates on the meaning of that home run in the legacies changed forever by a single crack of the bat.” —The Miami Herald

 

“A seat along the first base line. . . . Prager, like a good hurler with a command of many pitches, delivers nuance even when you’re expecting a fastball.” —The Plain Dealer

 

“Prager turns his remarkable powers of investigation on the men involved in the scheme. The result is an absorbing critique of the competitive ethic that too often rules not only America’s playing fields but its boardrooms as well.” —Sports Illustrated

 

“The depth of Prager’s research staggers the mind. . . . A must-have for baseball mavens.” —The Buffalo News

 

“You will not find a better-reported book on any subject than The Echoing Green.” —New York Post
