Baseball's Most Agonizing Defeats
John Kuenster, the editor of Baseball Digest and executive editor of Century Publishing Company, has chosen the 15 most most agonizing defeats in modern baseball history in his book Heartbreakers.
There is often a fine line between victory and defeat. Losing is unexpected, unpredictable, frequently a consequence of fickle fate: the slider that wasn't far enough outside; the missed tag at home plate; the line drive that just sliced foul.
In Baseball's Most Agonizing Defeats, you can read in detail about Kuenster's choices, review the box scores, and hear about the game itself from the players who were on the field.
