Summary
"From nearly forgotten heroes like Tad Lucas (rodeo) and Tommy Kono (weightlifting) to celebrities like Amelia Earhart, Muhammad Ali, and Michael Phelps, Cait Murphy tells the stories of the people, events, and things that have forged the epic of American sports, in both its splendor and its squalor. Stories of heroism and triumph rub up against tales of discrimination and cheating. These objects tell much more than just stories about great games--they tell the story of the nation"--Amazon.com
Summary
A sports historian describes 100 iconic objects that embody American sports, including Yogi Berra's glove, used to catch the only perfect game in World Series history, and the goggles Amelia Earhart wore in the first Women's Air Derby
