Lowering the Boom
The Bobby Baun StoryBook - 2000
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.
