The Pitch Cait Murphy’s Crazy ’08 is the story of the ”greatest year in baseball history,” when the New York Giants lost the pennant on Fred Merkle’s base-running blunder, and there was — that’s right — a ”Chicago Cubs dynasty.”

Curveball Hall of Famer John McGraw bet on his team (don’t tell Pete Rose) and owned a pool hall with the man behind the Black Sox scandal.

Final Score A penetrating look at the dead-ball era, when the game truly was the national pastime.
