    1. The novel is a quick read and has noteworthy aspects. The book focuses upon an extremely short timespan, only the first 5 games of the 162 game season. Mr. Plimpton, the author, gives a thorough account of the men on the mound that have to face Hank Aaron. The bulk of the text presents the psychology of the different baseball pitchers brought into the spotlight of history through the pursuit of Henry Aaron's homerun record. The author delves into their thoughts of possibly being a part of histor [...]


    2. I really enjoyed reading this book, but the more I looked into the story and the history, the more the shine has come off the book. I picked it up on a whim at a wonderful used book store with the thought that I always meant to read George Plimpton. The book follows the days before Hank Aaron beat Babe Ruth's homerun record. Plimpton spends a lot of the time talking about ancillary characters, like the people who caught the home run balls, the announcers, other pitchers who lost to historic home [...]


    3. This book was about Hank Aaron's chase to catch Babe Ruth's all time home run record. I gave this book three stars because it was pretty good to read all the interesting information, but the book was not really much about hank aaron and the author kept referring to other players a lot.Overall it was a o.k book if you really like baseball from the past.


    4. With his usual style, George Plimpton tells the story of Hank Aaron's pursuit of Babe Ruth's home run record. I was a teenager at the time and I vividly recall the night I watched him hit his 715th career home run on national television in 1974. At the time, I thought the record would stand forever.


    5. A short little book by an outstanding writer. I don't know why I didn't come across it sooner. Baseball fans need to read this book.
