PENNANT RACE by Jim Brosnan


Email this review


The large, literate and able relief pitcher of the Cincinnati Reds ball team now tells how and why they (the Reds) won the pennant. It is all explained in copious dialogue, laced with salty Anglo Saxon phrases, from beach, bullpen, field and wherever. Since he is a pitcher, he insists that ""pitching wins pennants"", and because he is an intelligent pro, he pretty well proves his case. The vast audience that follows the successes and failures of major league teams will be interested in Binz's interpretation.
