Publisher's Summary

Best-selling author Mark Frost takes listeners back to the 1975 World Series in this thrilling account of the greatest baseball game ever played. The Reds and Red Sox endured three soggy days of inactivity to reach game six. But all that downtime could not prepare them for what happened when the skies finally cleared.

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.

FAVORITE ALL-TIME BASEBALL BOOK

Hearing this on Audible only increased my joy in this book. Hearing of the 1975 World Series, and all the Stars involved, brought me back to a simpler time. Great writing and narration - More than worth a MLB Fan's time, especially if you're a long-suffering Reds, BoSox Fan.

If you're a baseball fan, this book is a must

Frost's storytelling is simply brilliant, and Andrew Garman's narration is excellent.
I remember watching Game 6 of the '75 World Series. I was 11 at the time and because it took place on a weeknight, I never did see Carlton Fisk's famous extra-inning home run. Naturally, I'm aware of how the game turned out, but on a personal level, Frost's book bridged a 42-year gap. Believe me, I've since You-Tubed Game 6. I loved watching the game knowing the inside info from Frost. This is a must!

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.
