"This book gives you a slightly different spin on Yankees history. You will relive many memorable moments, ones that have become familiar throughout the years, but this book gives you a little more insight into those moments and memories." --from the foreword by Joe TorreFrom the Inside Flap:
From the acquisition of Babe Ruth in 1920 to the reigns of Gehrig, DiMaggio, Berra, Mantle, Mattingly, and Jeter, the New York Yankees have proved to be the most storied franchise in sports. Anything a real fan could ever want to know about this beloved ballclub is in Yankees Essential. This fun, fact-filled reference guide tells the complete story of the most cherished team in the world.
The Yankees began as the New York Highlanders in 1903 and recorded their first win on April 23 of that year. In the 100-plus years since, they have won more world championships than any other sports franchise and sent more players and managers to the Hall of Fame than any other team in baseball. The Yankees have been involved in many of baseball's greatest moments, including Babe Ruth's called shot; Mickey Mantle's tape-measure home run; Don Larsen's perfect game; Roger Maris's 61st home run; the unforgettable playoff memories provided by Bucky Dent, Chris Chambliss, and Aaron Boone; and Reggie Jackson's and Derek Jeter's World Series heroics.
All of these great Yankees players are honored in this book, as are the most memorable moments in the team's rich history. Yankees Essential will take readers on a magical journey from the days of the old Highlanders right on into the 21st century and the team's most recent quest for a 27th championship. Whether you are an old-school fan looking to relive great memories of the past or a more contemporary observer looking to upgrade your Yankees knowledge, this book will satisfy your needs through countless anecdotes and insiders' stories; dozens of photographs; and scores of trivia, lists, and statistics
