To everything there is a season

The New York Public Library posted this list of five books that concentrate on a single season, including:

Interestingly, aside from the Madden book, none of the selections are older than 1968 even though there are some very good books about earlier seasons, including Cait Murphy’s Crazy ’08: How a Cast of Cranks, Rogues, Boneheads, and Magnates Created the Greatest Year in Baseball History and David Halberstam’s October 1964 and Summer of ’49, to name just a few.
