9780061690327: Steinbrenner: The Last Lion of Baseball

If you love the New York Yankees, arguably the most storied franchise in all of sports—or even if you’re just a fan of baseball history, or big business bios—this biography of the larger-than-life team owner for the past four decades is a must for your bookshelf. For more than 30 years Bill Madden has covered the Yankees and Major League Baseball for the New York Daily News, and he brings all his insights and inside connections to Steinbrenner: the definitive biography of one of New York’s most intriguing and long-standing sports figures, Yankees owner George Steinbrenner.

From the Back Cover:

No owner has changed the landscape of sports more than New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner. From the moment he bought the team in 1973, Steinbrenner's monomaniacal pursuit was to restore the most-fabled franchise in baseball history to its former glory. Steinbrenner's tumultuous reign included epic battles with Billy Martin, Reggie Jackson, Dave Winfield, even beloved Yankee captain Derek Jeter. His ruthless and free-spending tactics made him a lightning rod for controversy but they also paid off: Steinbrenner's Yankees won seven championships and remain the gold standard in all sports.

Throughout his three decades of covering the Yankees, Bill Madden has cultivated hundreds of sources at every level in the organization—from the many managers and front-office personnel Steinbrenner has fired to the bat boys who are ever present in the locker room. They all have colorful stories about the man with whom they have enjoyed a love-hate relationship, but in Steinbrenner, it is the Boss himself whose voice rises above the rest.

About the Author:

For more than thirty years Bill Madden has covered the Yankees and Major League Baseball for the New York Daily News and has written several books about the Yankees. He lives in New Jersey.
