100 Years of New York Yankees BaseballBook - 2002
The definitive narrative history of the world's greatest sporting franchise For more than 100 years, the New York Yankees have dominated baseball as no team ever has, in any sport. They have provided the very definition of a dynasty. Pinstripes and pennants. Aprils and Octobers. The House That Ruth Built in the city that never sleeps. A century of greatness embodied in one city and its team. But it hasn't always been that way, and it has never been easy. Yankees Century is the full history of this storied franchise, with the most compelling and authoritative narrative of the team ever written, more than 250 stunning photographs, and essays by the game's colorful scribes. On an unforgettable journey through time, you'll read about the unlikely scheme to build a ballpark in Manhattan atop solid rock, the magic of the Bambino rounding the bases, the stately DiMaggio taking the field, Lou Gehrig's poignant goodbye, Yogi Berra's hilarious verbal gaffes, Jack Chesbro's legendary spitball, Derek Jeter's mind-bending plays, and much more.
