THE ECHOING GREEN by Joshua Prager


THE ECHOING GREEN by Joshua Prager New audiobook 5 CDs Abridged. Original sealed box. Read by the author. Z51

The 1951 regular baseball season was asgood as over. The Brooklyn Dodgers led the New York Giants by three runs with just three outs to go in their third and final playoff game. Not once in the 278 prededing ploayoff and World Series haves had a team over-come a three-run deficit in the ninth inning, But New York rallied, and at 3:58 pm on October 3. 1951, Bobby Thomson bit a home run off Ralph Branca. The Giants won the pennant. The Echoing Green follows teh reverberations of that one moment from teh West Wing of the White House to the Sing Sing death house to the Polo Grounds clubhouse, in Harlem, a home run forever turned hitter and pitcher to hero and goat.

It was also in that center-field block of concrete where, after a home run, one of the Giant's coaches tucked away a Wollensak telescope. The spyglass would remain undiscovered until 2001 when Joshua Prager laid bare on the front page of the Wall Street Journal a Giant secret: from July 20, 1951, through the very day of the legendary game, the orange and black sotle the finger signals of the opposing catchers. The Echoing Green places that revelation at the heart of a larger story, recreating in extravagnt detail the 1951 pennant race and illuminationg as never before the impact of both one moment and a long-guarded secret on the lives of Bobby Thomson and Ralph Branca.

A wonderfully evocative image of th great American pastime, The Echoing Green is baseball history, social history and biography - an irresistible story from any angle. Z51
