The 1904 Olympics, the man who created tennis's Davis Cup, a record-smashing seventy home runs in one season, a man named Stan, the first forward pass in football, and the richest collection of soccer talent in North America: Hall of Fame journalist Bob Broeg recounts these tales and others in The One Hundred Greatest Moments in St. Louis Sports. Originally scripted for KFNS radio as part of a series read by Bob Costas, Broeg's vignettes cover the people and events of fourteen different St. Louis sports. With his behind-the-scenes perspective, the author highlights legendary feats and the untold stories that surrounded them. Discover how the St. Louis Stars' "Cool Papa" Bell, the renowned speedster of the Negro Leagues, once scored from first base on a bunt; and how trainers stimulated Thomas J. Hicks, the winner of the marathon at the 1904 Olympics, with doses of strychnine, brandy, and egg whites during the race. Broeg's descriptive storytelling and anecdotal style are accompanied by lavish illustrations. In a 1993 article in U.S. News and World Report, Harrison Rainie wrote, "If there is a common language in socially atomized, economically stressful, morally wandering America, it revolves around sports." Athletics is a defining factor for a region's identity, and for St. Louis, it has always played a significant role in the city's economic and social life. Broeg describes not only the lure and legacy of these sports moments, but also how they contribute to a shared identity for the city.

The story of the Rugby League World Cup, vividly brought to life with first-hand stories from the players, coaches and administrators who were behind the big moments. More than sixty years ago, Paul Barrière decided to host rugby league's first ever World Cup tournament. An enthralled Parisian public stood on concrete bleachers as their country fought gallantly in the final after suffering total rugby league abolishment a few years earlier. Each of the four teams lacked resources and money, with Britain not having cash to employ a coach or make their team blazers. Fast-forward to 2017 and the game's elite have access to sports scientists, earn high six-figure salaries and train in English Premier League-style facilities. Spectators can sit in lavish corporate boxes or the comfy surroundings of top-class stadiums, as global sponsors add their support behind a tournament that has set new standards in sporting excellence. From Great Britain training with a sock wrapped in a vest, Graeme Langland's 'try that wasn't', the violent 1960s, how New Zealand got Wayne Bennett, Wales and USA's gallant performances and England's epic semi-final against the Kiwis, this is a narrative of what made the World Cups so enthralling. From interviewing rugby league's biggest names like Johnny Whiteley, Wally Lewis, Dean Bell and Glenn Lazarus to master coaches such as Clive Griffiths, Ricky Stuart and Frank Endacott, Marmont brings together an exciting mixture of stories, anecdotes and interviews that will appeal to both rugby league supporters and anyone who loves a good sporting read.
