With two 8-page photo inserts by the world's premier cycling photographer, Graham Watson, and featuring interviews with the Tour's only other five-time winners still alive-Belgian Eddy Merckx, Frenchman Bernard Hinault, and Spaniard Miguel Induráin-23 Days in July will capture the rich history, nationalistic fervor, and diverse geographic challenges of the most dramatic athletic event in the world.

23 Days in July: Inside the Tour De France and Lance Armstrong's Record-Breaking Victory

by John Wilcockson

Taking place over 23 days in July and across more than 2,100 miles of smooth blacktop, rough cobblestones, and punishing mountain terrain, the Tour de France is the most grueling sports event in the world. And in 2004, five-time champion Lance Armstrong set out to achieve what no other cyclist in the 100-year history of the race had ever done: win a sixth Tour de France. Armstrong had four serious challengers, including the only former Tour de France champion in this past year's race, Germany's Jan Ullrich-the Kaiser-who wanted nothing more than to deny the man the French call Le Boss from achieving his goal. But when the race was over, Lance Armstrong once again wore the yellow jersey of victory.

25 Years of Limestone College Men's Lacrosse

by Ben Price Dr Walt Griffin

One of the most successful programs at any level of collegiate athletics, Limestone College lacrosse began its legacy in Gaffney, South Carolina, in 1990 and has since built a tradition and reputation unique to all others. The four-time NCAA Division II National Champions paved the way for the sport of lacrosse in the state of South Carolina, as well as much of the southern United States. The first southern program in the sport's history, Limestone quickly fought off the stigma that it would not be able to compete, becoming a top contender even in the program's infancy. Just 10 years after its inaugural season, the Saints broke through with the most coveted prize of all--a national championship. Since then, Limestone has added three more crowns and has appeared in the championship round 10 times. While the popularity of lacrosse continues to grow in South Carolina and the surrounding area, so too does Limestone's lore. The Saints continue to push forward and will forever remain innovators of the sport's heritage.

27 Men Out: Baseball's Perfect Games

by Michael Coffey

The first in-depth look at baseball's nirvana -- a lyrical history of pitching perfection. There have been only fourteen perfect games pitched in the modern era of baseball; the great Cy Young fittingly hurled the first, in 1904, and David Cone pitched the most recent, in 1999. In between, some great pitchers -- Sandy Koufax, Catfish Hunter, Jim Bunning, and Don Larsen in the World Series -- performed the feat, as did some mediocre ones, like Len Barker and the little-known Charlie Robertson. Fourteen in 150,000 games: The odds are staggering. When it does happen, however, the whole baseball world marvels at the combination of luck and skill, and the pitcher himself gains a kind of baseball immortality. Five years ago, Michael Coffey witnessed such an event at Yankee Stadium, and the experience prompted this expansive look at the history of these unsurpassable pitching performances. He brings his skills as a popular historian and poet to an appraisal of both the games themselves and of the wider sport of baseball and the lives of the players in it. The careers of each of the fourteen perfect-game pitchers are assessed, not only as to their on-the-field performances but with a regard for their struggles to persevere in an extremely competitive sport in which, more often than not, the men and women who run the game from the owners' boxes are their most formidable adversaries. Along the way, Michael Coffey brings us right into the ballparks with a play-by-play account of how these games unfolded, and relates a host of fascinating stories, such as Sandy Koufax's controversial holdout with Don Drysdale and its chilling effect on baseball's owners, Mike Witt's victimization by the baseball commissioner, and Dennis Martinez's long struggle up from an impoverished Nicaraguan childhood. Combining history, baseball, and a sweeping look at the changing face of labor relations, 27 Men Out is a new benchmark in sports history.

27 Men Out

by Bill James Michael Coffey

There have been only fifteen perfect games pitched in the modern era of baseball: The great Cy Young fittingly hurled the first one, in 1904, and Randy Johnson pitched the last one, in May 2004. In between, some great and famous pitchers -- Sandy Koufax, Catfish Hunter, Jim Bunning, and Don Larsen -- performed the feat, as did those lesser-known, like Charlie Robertson and Len Barker. Fifteen in 160,000 games: The odds are staggering. In 27 Men Out, popular historian Michael Coffey offers an expansive look at these unsurpassable pitching performances. Here you'll find play-by-play accounts of each of the fifteen perfect games and expert assessments of those who pitched them. Along the way, Coffey goes beyond the box scores to provide fascinating details about how these games unfolded, as well as compelling anecdotes about all of the key players -- from Koufax's controversial holdout with Don Drysdale to Mike Witt's victimization by the baseball commissioner to Dennis Martinez's struggle up from an impoverished Nicaraguan childhood. A must-have for baseball fans, historians, and statisticians alike, 27 Men Out is an exciting new benchmark in sports literature.

$3 Million Turnover

by Richard Curtis

Officially, I'm an agent. I represent professional athletes in basketball, football, tennis, golf--you name it. If money is paid for any athletic performance short of copulation, I take a commission on it. I say "officially." Unofficially, I have backed into another job: troubleshooting for the management of professional sports leagues--a kind of undercover operator. And it was this Richie Sadler case that got me into it. Aside from a hairline fracture of my cheekbone, temporary blindness, a scrotumful of somebody's knee, and the loss of the most promising marital prospect since my divorce, I did not get anything out of this case but the right to keep a staggering commission that really belonged to me. But now, when people in the sports world need someone to help unglue the fixes and wrestle with the drug problems, the gangsterism, and the sex scandals, they call on Dave Bolt.

The 30 Greatest Sports Conspiracy Theories of All-Time: Ranking Sports' Most Notorious Fixes, Cover-ups, and Scandals

by Mark Weinstein Cris Collinsworth Elliott Kalb

Separating fact from myth, Kalb attempts to determine which of these long-held conspiracy theories hold water, and which ones fall flat under scrutiny. Ranking the conspiracies from 1 to 30 and the likelihood of each conspiracy from 1 to 5, Kalb boldly asks: Did baseball avoid integration in the 1930s and 1940s with an unwritten agreement? Was Super Bowl III a fixed game? Did Sonny Liston throw both of his fights vs. Muhammad Ali? Was the NBA's first-ever draft lottery fixed? Why did Michael Jordan really retire from basketball the first time? Are some NASCAR race outcomes too good to be true? Did the New England Patriots cheat their way to a dynasty? What really happened at the 1921 Kentucky Derby? Why weren't any Japanese players signed to major league contracts from 1965-1995? And much more!

Author Duncan Larkin, a certified Army Master Fitness Trainer, also covers topics like running for new moms, single-parent training, how to prepare to run your first race, race-day tips, how to train while on business travel, and taking it to the next level—running forty-five and sixty minutes a day (10K and half-marathon schedules).
