About this title

Synopsis:

Countering the myth of New York Yankee infallibility, Those Damned Yankees relates the trials and tribulations of baseball's most hated team and serves as the definitive guide for those who hate them. Author Clarke Canfield, a longtime New England journalist, relates every rich and juicy detail-the disastrous seasons, the blowout losses, the infantile behavior of players, the horrible trades, and all the crushing playoff and World Series defeats. It is a book to warm the hearts of Yankee haters and true baseball fans everywhere. Canfield has enlisted the help of some well-known media personalities and sports reporters to help him relate the intense emotions that are stirred by those who wear pinstripes. The book features essays by former Red Sox pitcher Bill Lee, Dale Arnold of WEEI radio, Tom Caron of NESN, Kevin Thomas of the Portland Press-Herald, John Holyoke of the Bangor Daily News, and Kevin Witt of the Times-Herald Record of Middletown, New York.

About the Author:

Clarke Canfield, a native of Boston, has hated the Yankees since birth. The experience of the Red Sox beating the Yankees to win the American League Pennant in 2004, and then going on to win the World Series, was so sweet that he was inspired to write Those Damned Yankees as a tribute to all the baseball fans who hate the Yankees just as much as he does and for just as long. He has been a journalist for more than twenty-five years, currently works for The Associated Press, and previously worked at daily newspapers in Arkansas, Nashville, and Maine. He has been an editor at three magazines and also has worked as a freelance writer. He earned a degree from the University of Denver and a master's degree in journalism from Boston University.
