Quotes & Awards

  • “Andrew Garman narrates with just the right tone: quietly dramatic, carefully critical. His subdued voice makes it seem like the listener is a fan at the game watching history take place. Great nuggets of trivia unfold along with wonderful stories…Knowing the outcome doesn’t matter—this well-researched and well-written book is amply entertaining. Garman is like a reliable pitcher who keeps fans engaged inning after inning.”

    " Can you imagine writing a book about one baseball game? All right, it's probably the best baseball game ever played. Even though the author details every pitch of the game, the book never drags. A must for baseball fans who love to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erik Bal | 2/14/2014

    " Filling out a book that focuses solely on one game is difficult. Frost does an excellent job of giving us the back story on all the major players in Game Six. In doing so, however, he loses the drama of the game itself. Too often Frost goes on for pages and pages describing a players career or events from earlier in the season that brought the teams to this point, then, seemingly as an afterthought, throws in a bit of game action. The epilogue also seems like a reach. Frost focuses too much on the Red Sox continued suffering all the way through their World Series win in 2002. I would have liked to have read more about the later careers of the players who were a part of Game Six than a thirty year history of the Red Sox since that night. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ellen | 2/5/2014

    " Though two other books have been written on the '75 series, this covered new ground. Other than the author's skewed perspective on court-ordered busing in Boston, this is spot on. "

    " What an amazing story. If you are fan of baseball, and of these two team in particular, you will love this book. It gives not only a great account of the game but also gives you the back story of of the key players involved and reminds you of US/world events that were happening at the time. "

    " You MUST read this book if you're Red Sox fan. You HAVE to read this book if you are a baseball fan. You MIGHT pick this up if you're a sports fan. Basically, a really well written account of a single game that was etched in fans memories by Fisk's arm waving and the events leading up to it. "

    " "Don't you hand me that damn ball until I reach out and ask you for it. We're professionals out here. We've got another man coming in to do this job now, and we'll all damn well stand here together like a team and wait until he's on his way." "
