Joseph Konte - The Rivalry Heard Round the World

Tuesday, September 3, 2013 - 7:00pm

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 ($24.95) captures the spirit and intensity of one of the greatest rivalries in American sports.
