Split Season 1981: Fernandomania, The Bronx Zoo and The Strike That Saved Baseball is the never-before-told, behind the scenes story of the exciting and memorable 1981 baseball season, the year of Fernando Valenzuela, Pete Rose and the last Yankees-Dodgers World Series, and the mid-season, owner-provoked strike that cut the heart out of the American summer.
