The rollercoaster ride that produced one of the most improbable championships in college sports history is captured in remarkable detail in this new release. Featuring over 100 full-color photos, riveting radio play-by-play excerpts, and telling comments from the "Wonderdogs" themselves, this book takes you inside Fresno State's unprecedented string of upsets that ended with the school's first NCAA baseball championship. Eavesdrop in the dugout as the team stares elimination in the face six times on its way to the title. Go beyond the big swings, diving catches, and knee-buckling curveballs to discover the deeper meaning in the six-week journey from 89th in the country to the top of that College World Series dogpile. From their stoic skipper to his team full of "sixth graders at recess," you'll get to know the key figures who turned adversity into triumph on a scale usually only found in fantasy. Written in the unique storytelling style of the team's radio announcer, Underdogs to Wonderdogs spins an exhilarating, heart-warming, and inspirational tale that just so happens to be true. Lending additional perspective to the significance of Fresno State's win is a chapter packed with exclusive comments from opposing coaches, local and national media, and luminaries long associated with the program. This book makes a great gift for the baseball lover in your life, and even non-sports fans will be drawn to the human side of one team's magical metamorphosis.
