Summer of '68
The extraordinary story of the 1968 baseball season, when the country was being pulled apart at the seams. Author Tim Wendel takes us on a wild ride through a season that saw such legends as Bob Gibson, Denny McLain, Don Drysdale and Luis Tiant set new standards for excellence on the mound. In Detroit, which had one of the worst riots in American history the summer before, the city rallied behind a colorful Tigers team led by McLain, Mickey Lolich, Willie Horton and Al Kaline. The Tigers finished atop the American League and found themselves on a collision course with Gibson's Cardinals. With both team's seasons culminating in a thrilling World Series, what ultimately lay at stake was something even larger: baseball's place in a rapidly changing America that would never be the same.
