Publisher's Summary

For 53 years, San Francisco waited. Waited for a team like the 2010 Giants to come along. Waited for a team that could end a title drought that started in New York and carried on for more than five decades after a move to the West Coast. Waited for that one magical postseason run that could unleash more than a half-century of pent-up frustration. At long last, the 2010 Giants hopped on that magic carpet and made it happen. San Jose Mercury News beat reporter Andrew Baggarly captured the 2010 Giants' incredible run through the regular season, playoffs and World Series in his new book, A Band of Misfits: Tales of the 2010 San Francisco Giants, as they finally captured that elusive title not just for the team, but for the entire city of San Francisco.

Baseball

The story of a team cobbled together from spare parts with the exception of the young, highly talented starting pitchers. 2010 marked the beginning of the early slide that affected diminutive pitcher Tim Lincecum and the ultimate rise of Madison Baumgarner, their current ace starter; the man who led them to the 2014 World Series championship. The author obviously got to know the players and their stories better than some of the other baseball books I've purchased from Audible that don't go very far past game reports and statistics. A good listen for baseball fans.
