Bibliography Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary This was the last season of eight teams in each league before expansion, and eventually divisions and playoffs. There was Pittsburgh's shocking World Series victory over the indomitable Yankees...a classic home-run derby, the formation and ultimate disbading of the proposed Continental League, and the effect on league expansion. Covers the stars playing--both rookies and veterans, and season highlights such as no-hitters and trades.-- Summary by cataloger based on jacket.
