    "For the love of Baseball"

    If you love baseball, don't miss this. Thorough, detailed and full of perspective on baseball's evolution since 1975's pivotal series...you're sure to learn something you've forgotten or didn'tknow. Nicely brought up to date in to 2008.

    "Fantastic! A must for baseball fans..."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Game Six to be better than the print version?

    N/a


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The insight on Luis Tiant is well done...


    Which character – as performed by Andrew Garman – was your favorite?

    he doesnt "perform"


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I'm surprised there isnt a movie already...


    Any additional comments?

    This is a great and insightful book for baseball fans....there is SOOOOO much more to the story than you probably know or remember.

    "Like re-living the real thing"

    I watched game 6 of the 1975 World Series on TV. I was a teen and a Giants fan (so I had to hate the Reds) and that game was perhaps the greatest games I have ever seen -- except when the Giants did win the World Series ; ). I loved all the back stories, especially for the Boston players since I did not know them. A MUST for any baseball fan.

    "Excellently written tale of baseball legend"

    As a lifelong baseball fan, I can certainly enjoy listening to any great game. The approach Frost takes, weaving the game action with the personal stories of the people involved as well as the histories of the Reds and Red Sox franchises, was done like an extended radio broadcast, telling the stories in between pitches. The key for me, as a fan & student of the history of baseball, was to get me to find out things that I hadn't known about the central figures in the game as well as what happened behind the scenes involving Major League Baseball and NBC.

    The vivid pitch-by-pitch accounts are suited for the baseball junkie, while the stories behind the game work well for those who like the game but enjoy a fine read or listen. The narration was excellent in that Garman isn't simply reading from a book but rather conveying the drama from Fenway that night while also pacing well to distinguish the game action from the back stories.

    "A story that no Hollywood screenwriter could write"

    Before I began listening to Mark Frost's Game 6, I wondered how your could write an entire book about one game, when I finished, just this afternoon, I knew. Game 6 of the 1975 world series, a game I remember watching on TV, held some of the great players and some of the great back stories in baseball. Andrew Garman was the perfect naratory for this book, with a quality that baseball stories require, his voice had that cadence that let's you savor the story and feel the history. Frost weaves the story expertly to keep your interest, going from the games action to the players story and back again, never boring the listener. I found myself checking out some of the highlights of this game on YouTube but coming away disappointed. The book, and it's detailed story were so much better then the video footage. For any baseball fan, this is a must listen.

    "I was there."

    I was at this game...I still have my ticket. I loved how the game was written like a normal radio broadcast of a baseball game. This book brought back a lot of memories of that season and the game.
