KIRKUS REVIEW

Twenty-two controversial sports events are subjected to ""instant replay"" via old photos, contemporary accounts, and Greenspan's analytical brain. Here you'll find reruns of Fred Merkle's boner, Roy Riegels' wrong-way Rose Bowl touchdown, the 1908 Olympic marathon race, the Willard-Johnson Havana fight, the 1940 Dartmouth. Cornell ""fifth-down"" game, and catcher Mickey Owens' missed third strike which left all of Flatbush wailing ""da bum.
