About the Book

The best baseball team of the 20th century? How about the 1906 Cubs? Or the 1998 Yankees? Don’t forget the 1929 A’s, or the 1976 Reds. Some say the Yanks had a pretty good squad in 1927. There were so many great teams in the last century, it would be hard to compile a list of the 25 best—much less rank those clubs—but that’s what the authors have done! This is an endlessly fascinating tome, sure to prompt spirited discussions around the water cooler or above the dugout. Let the arguments (and the fun!) begin!
