Unavailable. No reason given.


Celebrate the 100th anniversary of the first World Series with The World Series Most Wanted(TM)M/i>. You'll find fascinating facts, oddball tales, and record-breaking achievements from that initial World Series between the Boston Americans and the Pittsburgh Pirates all the way up to the 2003 World Series. The next in a long line of vaunted Most Wanted(TM)books from Potomac. THE The World Series Most Wanted(TM) tells the tale of October glory and heartbreak, of heroes and goats, and of the thin line between success and failure on baseball's grandest stage. With a hopping sixty top-ten lists of World Series trivia, you'll find all the trivia from the fall classic you can ask for. Everyone knows about the infamous Curse of the Bambino, but what other teams have been similarly cursed when it comes to winning the big one? Don Larsen's perfect game is etched into baseball lore, but what other mound masterpieces has October provided? Red Sox fans will never forget the sight of that ground ball rolling between Bill Buckner's legs, but what other teams have been six outs or fewer from popping champagne-and lost?

You'll be introduced to players who came off the bench for an injured star and stole the spotlight. You'll meet families who can compare rings over Thanksgiving dinner. You'll find out who went oh-for-the-Series, who set records, who hit back-to-back homers, and who did things that were one-of-a-kind or just plain weird. The World Series Most Wanted(TM)is a grand slam of October fun.
