The Immaculate Inning: Unassisted Triple Plays, 40/40 Seasons, and the Stories Behind Baseball's Rarest Feats

THE IMMACULATE INNING                       JOE COX

The Immaculate Inning shines a light on the miracle of baseball's endless possibility--the way that on any given day, someone (maybe a star, or maybe a scrub) could perform the rarest of single-game feats or cap off a seemingly unobtainable chase for a record. Covering a selection of the most unusual, significant, and rare feats in baseball history, both in the context of single-day (and sometimes even single-play) events and those that require a longer streak or a full season's excellence to reach or complete, the book clearly defines how each task is amassed, provides historical background, and tells riveting stories of the ballplayers that did the unthinkable.

PAT'S REVIEW

Mr. Cox takes you through time, time of different era’s and different ballgames to show you when an unassisted triple play was made when a pitcher retired the first three batters on nine pitches when a pitcher had three hundred strikeouts in a season. He tells you about six stolen bases in a game by one person which the way the game is going I don’t think that will happen again. I believe the other night a Dodger Rookie hit a home run on his first pitch that would make it 31 now. I don’t think we will see a .400 hitter or even anyone close to Rod Carew, George Brett or Tony Gwynn who were the last one to even get close. He takes you many different feats some I remember seeing some not either way this was truly a great book for anyone that loves baseball. I received this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 5 stars.
