So as a retired sportswriter, when his grandchild asks him about the World Series, Grandpa Gordy is more than willing to share his vast knowledge.

You'll marvel at the exploits of the game's unsung heroes like Bill Mazeroski, Edgar Renteria and Chad Curtis. You'll journey as far back as the 1920's when President Coolidge cheered on the "Big Train" Walter Johnson, and up to the 1990's where you'll hear what it was like to share a box seat with Ted Turner and George Steinbrenner. All along you'll delight in Grandpa Gordy's insightful, sometimes hilarious and always entertaining renditions of our national pastime's greatest games.
