While spring heralds baseball’s beginning, September’s all about winning. Seven Septembers, a three-year labor of love, was put on hold for This Day in Misery, my save-the-world chronology of 1,399 Trump dumpster fires. See something, say something duty complete, my baseball book is finally ready for release. From Gabby Hartnett’s 1938 Cubs to Colorado’s raucous 2007 Rocktober, I offer you the seven most fantastic finishes in MLB history. Here is the day-by-day, down-to-the-wire drama each club negotiated in defying the longest of odds to snatch the pennant or a coveted postseason spot.
