Demonstrating that claiming the most sought-after moniker in baseball is truly an epic journey, this record explores what separates World Series victors from those who come up short. More than 50 current and former Major League Baseball players, managers, and coaches from the last 50 years--all of whom have World Series championships under their belts--are interviewed, including Jack Morris, Lance Parrish, Kent Hrbek, Jim Kaat, and Dave Winfield. Packed with never-before-published stories, this chronicle includes hilarious tales from the clubhouse and dugout as well as inspirational and educational anecdotes. Answering questions such as How are great teams built? How do you keep players motivated when momentum seems to be turning against them? and What are the key qualities that every leader must possess? this investigation illustrates how championship baseball teams offer valuable lessons that can be readily applied to everyday life.
