New Edition of Markusen's Award-Winning Book Released


A Baseball Dynasty: Charlie Finley's Swingin' A's, authored by Bruce Markusen '87,  tells the story of Oakland's colorful, controversial, and highly successful teams of the early 1970s. This newly released edition contains added interviews with A's stars Joe Rudi, Gene Tenace, Jim "Mudcat" Grant, and John "Blue Moon" Odom.  Markusen is also the author of The Orlando Cepeda Story and Roberto Clemente: The Great One.

The winner of the Society for American Baseball Research's Seymour Medal as the best baseball book of 1998, this newly released edition contains new material including updated and expanded accounts from the raucous 1972 regular season and World Series—in celebration of the 30th anniversary of the team known as the "Mustache Gang"—year-by-year statistical summaries of Oakland's dynastic run, and newsmaking headlines from the turbulent 1970s. 

To order a copy of the book directly from the publisher, send a letter and/or a check in the amount of $23.20 (to cover the cost of the book, plus shipping and handling) to St. Johann Press at PO Box 241, Haworth, NJ, 07641.
