Experience a century of the pride, power, and pinstripes of the Yankees, Major League Baseball's most successful team, as told through the stories of their hometown newspaper, The New York Times.

The New York Yankees are the most storied franchise in baseball history. They consistently draw the largest home and away crowds of any team, command the largest broadcast audiences in baseball, draw the greatest number of on-line followers, and routinely sell more copies of books and magazines than any other professional sports team.

The New York Times Story of the Yankees includes more than 350 articles chronicling the team's most famous milestones—as well as the best writing about the ball club. Each article is hand-selected from The Times by the peerless sportswriter Dave Anderson, creating the most complete and compelling history to date about the Yankees.

Organized by era, the book covers the biggest stories and events in Yankee history, such as the purchase of Babe Ruth, Roger Maris's 61st home run, and David Cone's perfect game. It chronicles the team's 27 World Series championships and 40 American League pennants; its rivalries with the Brooklyn Dodgers and the Boston Red Sox; controversial owners, players, and managers; and more. The articles span the years from 1903—when the team was known as the New York Highlanders—to the present, and include stories from well-known and beloved Times reporters such as Arthur Daley, John Kieran, Leonard Koppett, Red Smith, Tyler Kepner, Ira Berkow, Richard Sandomir, Jim Roach, and George Vecsey.

Hundreds of black-and-white photographs throughout capture every era. A foreword by die-hard Yankees fan, Alec Baldwin, completes the celebration of baseball's greatest team.

About the Author:

The New York Times is regarded as the world's preeminent newspaper. Its news coverage is known for its exceptional depth and breadth, with reporting bureaus throughout the United States and in 26 foreign countries. Winner of 112 Pulitzer Prizes, The Times has the largest circulation of any seven-day newspaper in the U.S.

Dave Anderson is one of America's most honored sportswriters. He covered the Brooklyn Dodgers for the Brooklyn Eagle, before moving to the New York Journal-American in 1955. In 1966 he began writing for The New York Times and was given his own column in 1971. He was the 1981 winner of the Pulitzer Prize for distinguished commentary and the 1994 winner of the Associated Press Sports Editor (APSE) Red Smith Award for distinguished sports-column writing. He was inducted into the National Sports Writers and Sportscasters Hall of Fame in Salisbury, North Carolina, in 1990, joining three other former "Sports of The Times," columnists—Red Smith, Arthur Daley and John Kieran. In 2005, he received the Dick Schaap Award for Outstanding Journalism. He is the author of 22 books and has written more than 350 magazine articles. He resides in Tenafly, New Jersey, with his wife Maureen.
