The October Heroes: Great World Series Games Remembered by the Men Who Played Them


As Donald Honig points out in his introduction, 'Every World Series in itself is a tale with beginning, middle, and end, and because there must be a winner, there must be a hero.' Tales of Babe Ruth, Honus Wagner, Grover Cleveland Alexander, Sandy Koufax, and Willie Mays are related by the star players who knew them. Those players recall vivid moments from their World Series games, stretching from 1912 to 1974.
