520 |a Baseball's Greatest Comeback recounts the story of the 1914 Boston Braves that experienced the greatest come-from-behind season ever witnessed in baseball history. A perennially woeful team, the Braves rose from the ashes of last place-fifteen games behind on July 4th-to battle in the World Series against the Philadelphia Athletics, one of the most dominant teams of all time. Baseball fans witnessed one of sport's most spectacular comebacks, and Boston's National League team earned a new designation: "The Miracle Braves." On the 100th anniversary of this memorable season, the 1914 Boston Braves are still remembered as one of the greatest comeback teams in baseball history. Full of timeless images and memorable characters -- including a fanatically superstitious manager, a cheerfully madcap star, and an obsessively driven, yet highly sensitive captain -- this book will inform and entertain baseball fans and sports historians alike.
