Description

Taking us back to the early nineteenth century, when baseball was played in the meadows and streets of Rochester, New York, ""Silver Seasons and a New Frontier"" retraces the careers of the players and managers who honed their skills at Silver Stadium and later at Frontier Field. The many greats who played for the Rochester Red Wings - Stan Musial, Cal Ripken, Jr., Bob Gibson, Boog Powell, Jim Palmer, Eddie Murray, and Juslin Morneau - are among those brought to life in this story rich with quirky performances and poignant moments. This updated version of ""Silver Seasons: The Story of the Rochester Red Wings"", published in 1996, includes three new chapters covering the team's record-setting tenth International League championship, being named top minor league franchise by Baseball America, and their new affiliation with the Minnesota Twins. In this title, read about the longest game in pro baseball history, a thirty-three-inning affair between the Red Wings and the Pawtucket Red Sox that stretched from April to June; learn about one of the greatest teams in minor league history, the 1971 Junior World Series champion Red Wings; take a trip back in time and relive the miracle homers hit by Estel Crabtree in 1939 and Jim Finigan in 1961; and, reminisce about the closing of fabled Silver Stadium and the opening of glorious Frontier Field in downtown Rochester, which was capped by an unlikely championship in the Red Wings' first season at their new park in 1997.
