How I Won the World Series
“The story I’m about to tell you is so amazing, so improbably, and so preposterous, you’re going to think I must have made it up. But I swear every word of it is true. This is not fiction.” So begins Dan Gutman’s tale of his lucky grapefruit and the historic 1986 World Series. Young sports fans who breeze through this dramatic (and funny) short story about the Red Sox, the Mets, and the Curse of the Bambino should check out Gutman’s Baseball Card Adventures series.
