At the 1929 Rose Bowl, talented center Roy Riegels picked up a fumble and made an incredible 65-yard run. There was just one problem. Roy Riegels was running the wrong way!
Renowned author Dan Gutman recreates this painful (but funny) moment in sports history in a picture book play-by-play of the game’s most thrilling moments—all framed by a friendly Grandpa remembering the game for his grandson. Told with the excitement of a sports announcer calling the greatest game of his life, and shown through vivid, cartoon-like illustrations by Kerry Talbott, The Day Roy Riegels Ran the Wrong Way is a feast of humor and history for any sports fan.
