Book Signings Miracle Men: Hershiser, Gibson, and the Improbable 1988 Dodgers by Josh Suchon


Josh Suchon has written an excellent book titled "Miracle Men". By the way, I miss listening to Josh on Dodger Talk. He is currently broadcasting games for the Albuquerque Isotopes if you didn't know.

Book Summary -

The 1988 World Series champion Los Angeles Dodgers are best remembered for Kirk Gibson’s dramatic home run, Orel Hershiser’s pitching dominance, and manager Tommy Lasorda’s masterfully corny motivation, but there was much more that made the season memorable, bittersweet, and controversial, and this book explains it all. Using hundreds of hours of new interviews with players, coaches, broadcasters, and fans and combing through newspapers and magazines, Josh Suchon takes a new generation of Dodgers fans back to their memorable 1988 championship season. From the end of Don Sutton’s Hall of Fame career and the memorable 46-day stretch of pitching by Hershiser that hasn’t been equaled since to unlikely playoff heroes Mike Scioscia, Mickey Hatcher, and Mike Davis, Miracle Men encapsulates the fever and fervor that surrounded the team and the city of Los Angeles in the summer and fall of 1988.

Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but other than that, this is great blog. A great read. Judi Online Casino Sbobet Ibcbet
