Colorful, shaggy, and unkempt, misfits and outlaws, the 1993
Phillies played hard and partied hard. Led by Darren Daulton,
John Kruk, Lenny Dykstra, and Mitch Williams, it was a team the
fans loved and continue to love today. Focusing on six key members
of the team, Macho Row follows the remarkable season with an
up-close look at the players' lives, the team's triumphs and
failures, and what made this group so unique and so successful.
With a throwback mentality, the team adhered to baseball's Code.
Designed to preserve the moral fabric of the game, the Code's
unwritten rules formed the bedrock of this diehard team whose
players paid homage and respect to the game at all times. Trusting
one another and avoiding ideas of superstardom, they consistently
rubbed the opposition the wrong way and didn't care. William C.
Kashatus pulls back the covers on this old-school band of brothers,
depicting the highs and lows and their brash style while also
digging into the suspected steroid use of players on the team.
Macho Row is a story of winning and losing, success and failure,
and the emotional highs and lows that accompany them.
