  Catalog >  > Curse of Rocky Colavito - A Loving Look at a Thirty-Year Slump
Description
 

The Indians tempted fate when they traded away Rocky Colavito in 1960. Young, strong, popular, and coming off back-to-back 40 home run/100 RBI seasons, he was the type of player you just don't trade.

Then, for the next thirty-three years, the Indians slumped miserably, finishing above .500 just six times, never higher than third in their division. Only pride and masochism brought fans back to drafty old Cleveland Stadium during those awful seasons, when even the most optimistic knew their hopes would be dashed by June.

Features:

* Softcover / 304 pages
* 5.5'' x 8.5''
* 40 Black-and-white photographs
* ISBN 978-1-59851-035-5
