The New York Mets dominated the National League during the 1986 regular season, but their magical run seemed destined for a disappointing ending at the hands of the Boston Red Sox in Game 6 of the World Series. With the Red Sox on the verge of an historic win that would finally dispel The Curse of the Bambino, the scrappy Mets managed to mount one of the most unbelievable and improbable comebacks in baseball history. The lasting image of Bill Buckner's disappointment in the wake of the Mets' celebration makes Game 6 of the 1986 World Series one most unforgettable moments in sports history.

Very cool! I was 6 in the fall of 1986. Great to see a book that captures the magic, and I can't wait to share this story with my best friend's son. You gotta believe!
