The amazing stories behind the 35 seventh games of baseball's World Series

The World Series has gone to a thrilling "game seven" only 35 times, and each one comes alive in The Seventh Game, a rich collection of compelling stories and statistics, offering a unique perspective of baseball at its greatest, when there is truly no tomorrow for either side.

From the 1909 marquee match-up of Ty Cobb and Honus Wagner, to the thrilling confrontation of Pete Alexander and Tony Lazzeri with the bases loaded in 1926, to Bill Mazeroski's improbable walk-off home run to beat the Yankees in 1960, all the way to 2002's "Giant disappointment" between the inspired Angels and the hard-luck Giants, each game is brought to light as Levenson provides:

In-depth analyses of the teams--their hitting, pitching, and defensive strategies

A quiz to challenge readers' seventh-game knowledge

Box scores of every game, filled with baseball facts

A controversial ranking of the games from best to worst

Full-color photos of rare ticket stubs from all 35 games

And much more
