Author and Montreal Expos historian Danny Gallagher leads readers up to the unforgettable day in October 1981 when Rick Monday of the Los Angeles Dodgers hit a home run off of Montreal Expos pitcher Steve Rogers in the ninth inning to give the Dodgers a berth in the World Series. Readers will be taken back to 1976 when a five-year plan for winning the National League championship was set in place by the Expos with the hiring of experienced manager Dick Williams. Gallagher examines old narratives about Blue Monday and talked to all the key players involved in the game, unearthing secrets and stories never before told. The book is a tribute to the Expos and Dodgers, but places emphasis on Rogers and Monday, the two pivotal characters in that final playoff game.
