During the 1968 baseball season, Bob Gibson of the St. Louis Cardinals embodied an entire generation's hope for racial integration at a heated moment in American history. A 30-game winner, Denny McLain was a crass self-promoter who avoided his Detroit Tigers teammates to zip cross-country in his own plane. Anticipating a showdown, the nation watched as these two pitchers and their teams swept their respective league championships to meet at the World Series. Evoking a nostalgic season and its incredible characters, Sridhar Pappu tells the story of one of the great rivalries in sports, a duel that would forever change how the game is played.
