Synopsis: The New York Yankees were the strongest team in the majors from 1948 through 1960, capturing the American League Pennant 10 times and winning seven World Championships. The average fan, when asked who made the team so dominant, will mention Joe DiMaggio, Yogi Berra, Whitey Ford or Mickey Mantle. Some will insist manager Casey Stengel was the key. But pundits at the time, and respected historians today, consider the shy, often taciturn George Martin Weiss the real genius behind the Yankees' success.
Weiss loved baseball but lacked the ability to play. He made up for it with the savvy to run a team better than his competitors. He spent more than 50 years in the game, including nearly 30 with the Yankees. Before becoming their general manager, he created their superlative farm system that supplied the club with talented players. When the Yankees retired him at 67, the newly franchised New York Mets immediately hired him to build their team. This book is the first definitive biography of Weiss, a Hall of Famer hailed for contributing "as much to baseball as any man the game could ever know."

About the Author: A member of the Society for American Baseball Research, Burton A. Boxerman taught history for 30 years and contributes to numerous historical journals.
Writer and researcher Benita W. Boxerman is retired from one of the largest public relations firms in the United States and is also a member of SABR. Both are longtime baseball fans and reside in St. Louis, Missouri.

Book Description McFarland Co Inc, United States, 2016. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The New York Yankees were the strongest team in the major leagues from 1948-1960, capturing the American League Pennant 10 times and winning seven World Championships. Ask the average baseball fan who made the Yankees so dominant and most will mention players such as Joe DiMaggio, Yogi Berra, Whitey Ford, or Mickey Mantle. Some may insist that manager Casey Stengel was the key. But sports pundits at the time, and respected sports historians today consider the real genius behind the Yankees success their general manager, a portly, often taciturn, and very shy man named George Martin Weiss.Weiss loved baseball but lacked the ability to play the game. What he had was the savvy to run a baseball team better than virtually anyone he competed against. Weiss spent more than 50 years in baseball, including nearly 30 years with the Yankees. Before he was Yankee GM, he created and ran their superlative farm system that continuously supplied talented players to the parent club. When the Yankees fired him at age 67, because he was too old , the newly franchised New York Mets immediately hired him to build their team. This is the first in-depth biography of George M. Weiss, who, when inducted into Baseball s Hall of Fame in 1972, was hailed for contributing as much to baseball as any man the game could ever know. Seller Inventory # AAC9780786472536
