The Bobby Baun Story

Book - 2000
Rate this:
For more than 17 NHL seasons, Bobby Baun patrolled the blueline for the Detroit Red Wings, Toronto Maple Leafs, and Oakland Seals. The bruising defenseman, known for his devastating hip checks and stellar defensive play, lives on in the memories of hockey fans the world over for one of the most exciting moments in sports history.

In the third period of game six of the 1964 Cup finals, playing for his Leafs against the archrival Detroit Red Wings, Baun took a slapshot off his ankle and was taken off the ice on a stretcher. His fractured ankle frozen and taped, Baun heroically returned for overtime and knocked one past Terry Sawchuk, winning the game and inspiring the Leafs to win the Cup in game seven.

Now, for the first time, Baun takes us beyond that legendary snapshot in hockey history, telling us the inside story about his fabled career. Baun takes us into the dressing rooms, training camps, and family life of his days as one of hockey's most dangerous defensemen.
