Waste Of A Wonderful Year
The author seemingly did the impossible--he wrote a poor book about the incredible 1975 World Series. His book is full of hyperbole, inaccuracies, and his personal opinion on such items as Johnny Bench's new wife Vicki's tight fitting blouse. He brings in for his own purposes Ricky Henderson who in 1975 was in high school, Dave McNally, who was washed up before he left the Expos and had no impact on the 1975 season, and the length of Sparky Anderson's son's hair. Shame on Adelman.

1975 Baseball Season and Carlton Fisk
"Long Ball" is a terrific in-depth account of the exciting 1975 season that culminates with Carlton Fisk's iconic home run in the World Series.
Background stories, by Tom Adelman, about Reggie Jackson, Yaz, Catfish Hunter, Fred Lynn, Jim Rice, Luis Tiant, and more.
