Overview
A complete inning-by-inning account of the games that determined the pennant!

Relive the drama from some of the most memorable games in baseball history in this first-ever history of the very playoff games that had the World Series on the line. Includes the 1946, 1951, 1959, and 1962 NL Tiebreakers, the single-game 1948 AL Tiebreaker, the ALCS from 1969-1976, and the NLCS from 1969-1976. Go back to the Polo Grounds for the Shot Heard Round the World. Be dazzled by the Miracle Mets. Relive the glory years of the Baltimore Orioles. Become an expert on the Swingin' A's and their early 1970s dynasty. Experience the drama of Ya Gotta Believe. See the amazing accomplishments of the Big Red Machine, and take yourself to Yankee Stadium for the incredible pennant-winning home run by Chris Chambliss. This is functionally an encyclopedia but reads like a storybook. It's a must-have for any baseball fan -- casual or die-hard, new-to-the-game or a fanatic since birth!
