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.”

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by james | 2/15/2014

    " 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 by 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 by 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Billy | 1/14/2014

    " This is a fantastic book for red sox fanatics. It's amazing how well the writer, Mark Frost, weaves together background stories with the action of the game. Totally enjoyable. Masterfully done! "
