Publisher's Summary

Never in baseball history had a team ranked last rebounded to take the pennant the following season. Yet, in 1991, lightning struck twice as the Minnesota Twins and the Atlanta Braves, a pair of cellar dwellers the year before, faced each other in an unforgettable World Series. 

When the final out was recorded, the cover headline in Baseball Weekly read: Best World Series ever.”

Great Story, Uninspired Narrator

I grew up in Minnesota and was a Twins fan from the beginning. The story is well written and is very complete. However the narrator sounds like he doesn't really care and is about to fall asleep. This book deserves a better narrator. This is sad, because the story is about how two last place teams the very next year reach the World Series and experience what many call the best Series ever. It's a wonderful story about determination, grit and perseverance. Last place to first, both teams, showed off baseball at it's best.
