The mystique and mystery of hitting a home run, especially going long in the World Series.
The Season When Baseball and America Changed Forever
From CityLit Press

“DOWN TO THE LAST PITCH is a lovely, loving ode to baseball’s immutable law of possibility. Just when you think you’ve seen everything, read everything, along comes a book and an author in whose gifted hands the past comes alive and makes you believe in miracles all over again.”— Jane Leavy, author of The Last Boy: Mickey Mantle and the End of America”s Childhood

"...the star of DOWN TO THE LAST PITCH is Wendel, one of our game’s must-read writers.” — John Thorn, Official Historian of Major League Baseball
