In the third and final Volume of his baseball oral-history trilogy, former MLB commissioner Fay Vincent introduces great players from the 1970s and 1980s, as well as managers, an umpire, and the inestimable Marvin Miller, first head of baseball's players' union, who recount some of the great stories and significant changes to the game that took place during those years. From the Miracle Mets of 1969 to the end of Cal Ripken's historic consecutive-games streak, this book is a feast for baseball fans. Willie McCovey, Juan Marichal, Tom Seaver, Don Baylor, Ozzie Smith, and Ripken recall favorite memories. Dick Williams and Earl Weaver assess their Hall of Fame careers. Bruce Froemming, MLB's longest-serving umpire, reveals how the men in blue control the game. And Marvin Miller, one of the most important figures in the history of baseball, remembers the origins of the players' union and explains why it has flourished.
