In Game 5 of the 1956 World Series against the Brooklyn Dodgers, New York Yankees pitcher Don Larsen threw the only perfect game in World Series play. There's only even ever been one other no-hitter in baseball's postseason, a 2010 National League Divisional Series no-hit, one-walk game by the Philadelphia Phillies' Roy Halladay against the Cincinnati Reds. There probably isn't a more dramatic possibility in sports than winning the entire World Series with a home run. It's happened twice.

Created by Albert Kanter, the series began publication in 1941 and finished its first run in 1969, producing 169 issues. Following the series' demise, various companies reprinted its titles.

It is illustrated with over 670 images of military dress, weapons, galleys, ballistas and fortifications. This book details the uniforms of the Roman army and its enemies, from the first decades of tribal warfare in Italy, through the republican and imperial periods, up to the end of the eastern Roman Empire. It includes expert insight into the army's astonishing engineering feats, the discipline of the legions and the relentless expansion of the empire

Every October, at the end of a ling summer of baseball, the pennant winners from the National and American Leagues compete in a series of games to decide which one shall lay claim to the title of world s best. The World Series: An Illustrated Encyclopedia of the Fall Classic captures more than a century of such contests in wonderful archival photographs, vivid retellings of every match-up and detailed statistics for every World Series game that has ever been played. From the first series in 1903, when the American League s Boston Pilgrims (later known as the Red Sox) faced off against the Pittsburgh Pirates of the National League, to the 2005 series in which the Chicago White Sox, who had not won a World Series in 88 years, swept the Houston Astros, The World Series is and exhaustive collection of stories, statistics and much more. All of the epic moments are captured here in words and photographs, whether it is a slugger knocking a ball out of the park Bill Mazeroski, Carlton Fisk, Reggie Jackson and Babe Ruth made history for such deeds; a fielder depriving a batter of the hero s mantle with spectacular glove work we remember Willie Mays making a sensational over-the-shoulder catch in 1954 and Brooks Robinson turning dazzling play after dazzling play at the hot corner in 1970; or a pitcher at the top of his form Bob Gibson intimidating batters to the tune of 17 strikeouts, an aged Pete Alexander fanning Tony Lazzeri with the bases full, or the perfect afternoon in 1956 that belonged to Don Larsen. The World Series has also given lesser-known players names like Ehmke, Lavagetto and Tenace the opportunity to triumph, and has been the scene of bitter disappointments and personal anguish Mickey Owen dropping the third strike and Bill Buckner losing the ball between his legs. The World Series chronicles every victory and defeat in words and images that bring each moment to life. Every game is described to convey the feel and the flavor of the match-up, to highlight the moments and performances that stand out as the greatest in this or any other sport. Alongside the stories and images are statistics that detail every hit, every strikeout, every stolen base and much more. Special features examine topics like Great World Series Upsets, Unlikely October Heroes, Highlights from the Mound, Dramatic Series Endings and the All-Time Great World Series Performances. For more than 100 years, baseball s greatest stage has produced remarkable moments that have captivated fans and sealed the sport s place as America s national pastime. The World Series: An Illustrated Encyclopedia of the Fall Classic is a celebration of the men and the moments that have made each World Series since 1903 something to remember and cherish.

What a GREAT book. A must have for every baseball fan. GET IT
ME
This is a great book about the World Series! It is laid out extremely well. It is divided by each World Series matchup. It gives statistics for the series (overall) for the players, as well as a break down of each game. There are lots of pictures and a nice write-up that tells the story of each Fall Classic matchup. Series that are more famous are written up in more detail than others. I cannot imagine a more well-written book on the World Series. This truly is a well-produced book.
