Phinally!: The Phillies, the Royals and the 1980 Baseball Season That Almost Wasn't
Daniel, who works in sports television and at Indiana U., recounts the 1980 baseball season, the personalities involved, and stories behind the stories, from spring training, to each month of the season, to the postseason and World Series between the Philadelphia Phillies and the Kansas City Royals. He shows how 1980 was the first year of a transitional decade in Major League Baseball, as speed and pitching were phased out and replaced by pumped-up sluggers, players could move freely from team to team as free agents, and general managers built teams to play on plastic grass in multi-purpose stadiums.
