Arguably the greatest ball club in National League history, the 1953 Brooklyn Dodgers recorded some staggering statistics. They led the league in virtually every offensive category while fielding some of the finest defensive players of the era. But the team's extraordinary success on the field is only part of their story.

Jackie Robinson was in his seventh year since breaking the color barrier, but ugly racist incidents were yet to abate and several marred the '53 season. The most intense rivalry in sports - between the Dodgers and the New York Giants - climaxed with a September brawl as Dodger Carl Furillo floored Giants manager Leo Durocher. First baseman Gil Hodges weathered a horrendous slump with the support of the team's devoted fans. This book tells the exciting story of the '53 Brooklyn Dodgers, highlighting a season and a team that was one of the greatest in what may have been baseball's greatest era.
