What artifact best captures the spirit of American sports? The bat Babe Ruth used to hit his allegedly called shot, or the ball on which Pete Rose wrote, "I'm sorry I bet on baseball"? The jerseys of rivals Larry Bird and Magic Johnson? Or the handball that Abraham Lincoln threw against a wall as he waited for news of his presidential nomination? In this illustrated, chronological survey, the author of Crazy 08 tells the stories of the people, events, and things that have forged the epic of American sports, from Amelia Earhart's goggles to Arthur Ashe's tennis rackets, and from a 19th century bicycle to a golf club used on the moon.
