All the drama of theMoreThe 1964 season, highlighted by two significant trades, a game-winning home run, and three no-hitters, was a dramatic one for the National League. But even more thrilling was that seasons final week and the race for the pennant. All the drama of the 1964 National League season through the Cardinals league championship is in this book. It covers Johnny Callisons All-Star game-winning home run, Duke Sniders trade from the New York Mets to the San Francisco Giants and Lou Brocks trade from the Cubs to the Cardinals, Reds manager Fred Hutchinsons battle with cancer (and his replacement, and death in November 1964), the controversial remarks made by Giants manager Alvin Dark about African American and Latin players on his own team, the no-hitters pitched by Sandy Koufax of the Dodgers, Jim Bunning of the Phillies, and Ken Johnson of the Colt .45s (later the Astros), the opening of Shea Stadium, and the demolition of Polo Grounds.

Special attention is given to the final weeks of the season when the Phillies collapsed with a six and a half game lead and twelve games to go, while battling it out with the Cardinals and the Reds.
