The legendary baseball manager takes readers behind the scenes of the St. Louis Cardinals' 2011 season, detailing a journey that resulted in one of the most dramatic World Series of all time.
After thirty-three seasons managing in Major League Baseball, La Russa thought he had seen it all-- until the 2011 Cardinals. Down ten and a half games with little more than a month to play, the Cardinals had long been ruled out as serious post season contenders. Yet in the face of those steep odds, this team mounted one of the most dramatic and impressive comebacks in baseball history, making the playoffs on the night of the final game of the season and going on to win the World Series despite being down to their last strike-- twice.
