Author:
: 4.1 of 5, readers votes - 27
Genre: biography, sport
Annotation:In early 1969, New York City and all it represented was in disarray: politically, criminally, and athletically. But while Simon and Garfunkel lamented the absence of a sports icon like Joe DiMaggio, a modern Lancelot rode forth to lead the New York Mets to heights above and beyond all sports glory.



This book tells the complete, unvarnished story of the great Tom Seaver, that rarest of all American heroes, the New York Sports Icon. In a city that produces not mere mortals but sports gods, Seaver represented the last of a breed. His deeds, his times, his townit was part of a vanishing era, an era of innocence. In 1969, six years after John F. Kennedys assassination, Seaver and the Mets were the last gasp of idealism before free agency, Watergate, and cynicism. Here is the story of Tom Terrific of the Amazin Mets, a man worthy of a place alongside DiMaggio, Ruth, Mantle, and Namath in the pantheon of New York idols.
