The Last Pure SeasonBook - 2000
1960: The Last Pure Season is the most complete work ever about one of baseball's most glorious campaigns. There was Pittsburgh's shocking World Series victory over the indomitable Yankees, Ted Williams' legendary final season, a classic home run derby, the formation and ultimate disbanding of Branch Rickey's proposed Continental League, and the birth of baseball's Twins and Angels. It was a time when most of the game's players earned salaries about 25 times that of the average American, compared to 1999, where those salaries are nearly 400 times greater. So jump into your 1960 Chevy Impala, tune in the ball game, and take a trip back to one of baseball's most historic and pivotal years.
