    " Considering that I'm normally very interested in books on baseball, this one was OK only. The most interesting point was that Bobby Thompson knew what pitch was coming when he hit the shot heard around the world. "

    " A real eye-opener; even though Hank Greenberg had already told about this in his autobiography, it's heartbreaking to read about from the point of view of the pitcher who was so hurt by it. Does this carry over to the Dodgers and Giants of today? "
