Mile High Madness:: A Year with the Colorado Rockies

Bob Kravitz, Author, Don Baylor, Foreword by Crown Publishers $22 (249p) ISBN 978-0-8129-6359-5
In 1993 the Colorado Rockies was one of two expansion teams added to the National League, and the predictions about their initial season were extremely gloomy. The prophets were wrong: the team finished with a record of 67-95, the best ever for an NL expansion club. The Rockies first baseman, Andres Galarraga, won the batting title; some four and a half million baseball fans from the Mountain States (``The Time Zone Baseball Forgot'') flocked to Denver's Mile High Stadium, a record attendance for any team in any professional sport. Rocky Mountain News sports columnist Kravitz, who sums up the year as a ``wondrous romp,'' captures the season's excitement and joy, and manager Baylor's foreword adds to the appeal of this book.
