From the noted authority on '70s baseball and pop culture comes this fun and funky chronicle of the decade's most eventful season. America, 1976: colorful, complex, and combustible, a place of Bicentennial celebrations and busing riots, Olympic glory and Legionnaire's Disease, Presidential turn-over and hi-fi turntables. And as the nation saluted the 200th birthday of its independence in a spectacle of festivities, Major League Baseball players waged a war for their own liberties, demanding free agency. For both the nation and its national pastime, the year would turn out revolutionary, indeed. On the diamond, the 1976 season witnessed the crowning of the Cincinnati Big Red Machine dynasty, George Steinbrenner's first World Series with the Yankees, and the heroics of Mike Schmidt, Mark Fidrych, and George Brett. American pop culture was never more fun than in this red-white-and-blue year of Jimmy Carter, Ted Turner, CB radios, The Bad News Bears, Rocky, Taxi Driver, the Ramones, Hotel California, and Frampton Comes Alive!it all came alive in '76. Stars and Strikes tracks the tumultuous year from White House to shorts-wearing White Sox, chronicling a time on the eve of the disco era, after which the sport and the nation would never be the same. Big Hair and Plastic Grass author Dan Epstein gives this storied year the book it deserves in Stars and Strikes, detailing the characters, events, and cultural forces behind the Spirit of '76.
