Since the National League was founded in 1876, Major League teams have competed to be the best, facing off on the diamond for pennants and World Series titles. As years pass, fans and writers alike continue to match up great teams from different eras and debate which was superior. Through many decades, there has been no shortage of unforgettable Major League clubs, yet only a few of those squads were dominant enough to be considered one of Baseball's Greatest Teams.
We mark eras by their great teams. From the upstart 1969 Mets and 1906 White Sox, who rose from obscurity to championship; to the 1998 Yankees and 1929 A's, who steamrolled their way to World Series crowns; squads of all stripes have etched their names amongst the greats. Whether it's a pair of pitching aces and a Gold Glove defense or powerful bats and a knack for clutch hits, the best teams have dominated the competition in different ways.
This thoroughly researched and lavishly illustrated volume provides, for the first time, the tales behind the most storied clubs in the history of the Major Leagues. Baseball's Greatest Teams offers a front-row seat for historic 100-win seasons, record-shattering offensive campaigns, otherworldly pitching performances and behind-the-scenes moments of the greatest teams ever assembled.
