Walkoffs, Last Licks, and Final Outs is the definitive collection of baseball's grand — and not-so grand — final acts. It celebrates the moments that became instant classics — like Carlton Fisk waving fair his home run in the 1975 World Series — and memorializes those tragedies from baseball's ignominious lore — like Fred Merkle failing to touch second base and forcing a 1908 National League tiebreaker.
Features of the book include:
- The greatest postseason finishes of all-time
- A comprehensive breakdown of every perfect game in MLB history
- The last moments of the most distinguished old stadiums
- Heroic (and not-so-heroic) endings to Hall of Fame careers
- Eulogies and career statistics for ballplayers who passed before their time
- Boxscores and linescores for the greatest games ever played
- A slew of career statistics, ballpark data, and photographs
Walkoffs, Last Licks, and Final Outs is perfect for trivia heads, fans who want to know more about baseball history, and for those fans wondering where their own memories rank among the great (and not-so-great) finishes of all time. A must-have for any baseball library.
