Joe Konte - The Rivalry Heard 'Round the World: The Giants-Dodgers Feud from Coast to Coast

Monday, September 15, 2014 - 6:00pm

Games between the Dodgers and Giants are never just another day at the ballpark.

Dating back to the late nineteenth century--when the teams embodied the competitive spirit of rival metropolises of New York and Brooklyn--the Giants-Dodgers rivalry gained intensity throughout the early twentieth century. The venue had changed but the venom remained, and the rivalry became author Joe Konte's obsession.

A longtime newspaper editor and baseball fiend, Konte understands what is so special about what is one of the most significant rivalries in American sports. And so--via statistical analysis, game summaries, roster scrutiny, manager matchups, season recaps, and more--he has put together a rivalry bible. Focusing primarily on the California years, but also providing background on the origins and the New York years, The Rivalry Heard 'Round the World captures the spirit and intensity of one of the greatest rivalries in American sports.
