About this product
- DescriptionThe 1930 season was unlike any other in baseball history. Big league rosters included more Hall of Famers than at any time before or since. The high-water mark for offense was established, as nine of sixteen teams hit over 300 - and so did the average National League batter. Hack Wilson drove in a record 191 runs, and six others topped 150. A typical game would see each team score at least five times.And the fireworks weren't confined to the batter's box. The National League pennant included an unprecedented comeback, with the winning Cardinals having fought back from a 12-game deficit during the final month and a half of the season. The American League race featured two teams that finished with winning percentages above 600.For the first time, this remarkable season is covered in full, from spring training to the final out of the World Series.
