Tullius turns the spotlight on a long line of Yankee greats through a series of interviews that focus on their legendary feats. Managers, teammates, and opponents recall such milestones as Babe Ruth's 60 home runs, Roger Maris's 61, Joe DiMaggio's 56-game hitting streak, Lou Gehrig's 2130 consecutive games played, and Don Larson's perfect one. The accounts sometimes conflict, particularly in regard to Ruth's "called shot" in the 1932 World Series, but this is the stuff from which the legends were formed. The legions of Yankee fans as well as the haters should delight in the memories. For popular collections. William H. Hoffman, Ft. Myers-Lee Cty. P.L., Fla.
