The Glory Years: Oldtime Baseball Trivia by Kerry Banks

From 1946 to 1968 the great game of baseball truly was the national pastime -- an era affectionately recalled as the glory years, a time when a player always tucked his shirt in, wore his cap the right way, ran out all ground balls, and enjoyed the comradery of the fans. The players accomplished feats of mythic proportions -- Bobby Thompsons epic shot heard around the world, Don Larsons perfect game in the 1956 World Series, and Roger Mariss record-shattering 61 home runs in 1961. The heroics of Sandy Koufax and Jackie Robinsons breaking the color barrier set the stage for actions far exceeding the baseball diamond. Some of the heroes who played a part in this golden age were Willie Mays, Hank Aaron, Mickey Mantle, Ted Williams, Roberto-Clemente, Frank Robinson, Ernie Banks, Whitey Ford, Warren Spahn, and Bob Gibson. Discover stories, incidents, and remarkable feats arranged in a question-and-answer format. Find out who narrowly missed winning the Triple Crown in 1953, when he failed to beat out a ground ball in the final at-bat of the season? Whether youre an aficionado or one of the uninitiated, youll be regaled for hours with tales of the original boys of summer.
