In 100 Photographs

2018 INDIES Winner
Gold, Adventure, Sports & Recreation (Adult Nonfiction)

In 100 memorable and often stunning photographs, Sports Illustrated renders the story of the sport’s cultural heritage and uniquely American character. Inspiring events such as Jackie Robinson’s breaking the color barrier, Lou Gehrig’s Luckiest Man speech and one-handed pitcher Jim Abbott’s 1993 no-hitter, live in a continuum with stirring, rarely-seen shots of the game’s most beloved and largest personalities such as Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, Mickey Mantle and Cal Ripken Jr.
