Field Guide to 1988
– It’s 1988 and the revolution has begun. With debut albums from Soundgarden, Jane’s Addiction, NWA and Eazy-E, rock is shedding its hairspray image and rap is getting ready to take over the mainstream. In MLB, a “performance-enhanced” revolution will introduce itself to America’s Pastime in the form of The Bash Brothers, as sluggers Jose Canseco and Mark McGwire will lead the Oakland A’s to 104 wins and its first AL pennant since 1974. Ultimately, a hobbled Kirk Gibson will provide one of the most iconic World Series moments in history and a lights-out Orel Hershiser will lead the Los Angeles Dodgers to their first championship in more than 20 years.
