Summer of '68

San Francisco Public Library

Summer of '68: The Season that Changed Baseball - and America--Forever. 1968 has been called "the year that rocked the world", and it rarely showed any mercy. How else to describe a single year in which Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was killed and weeks later Robert Kennedy met the same fate. Tim Wendel's book chronicles the extraordinary baseball season of 1968, played out against the backdrop of one of the most divisive and turbulent years in American History. Co-sponsored by the Lefty O'Doul Chapter of the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR). A book sale by the Friends of the San Francisco Public Library follows the event.
