Overview

"Not in my wildest boyhood dreams did I ever envision that a World Series would come along and I'd be the seventh game pitcher."

Despite all odds, and a grueling nine-year stint in the minors that would dash most any other ballplayer's hope of reaching the major leagues, Jack Sanford found himself starring in the dramatic 1962 World Series, which pitted the San Francisco Giants against the mighty New York Yankees. This is the story of Jack's turbulent journey from a working-class childhood in Wellesley, Massachusetts, to baseball's ultimate stage; it is the story of perseverance in the face of continual discouragement; and it is the story of one boy's greatest dream turning, in an instant, into the unshakable nightmare that would haunt him the rest of his life.
