This is an exciting story that takes you through more than 150 games of the regular season and the World Series of the 1957 Milwaukee Braves. A day-by-day - sometimes inning-by-inning - chronicle of one of the all-time best baseball teams, the book begins with a history of the Braves franchise, then an overview of the near-miss of 1956, followed by a detailed journey through the '57 season and the World Celebration after a seven-game conquest in the World Series with the New York Yankees. It ends with an analysis of how close the '57 team came to being a part of a dynasty. All the key players are profiled along with the winning streaks, tough stretches, key transactions and costly injuries. Game highlights, player statistics, and box scores are included.
