This book offers the non-stop excitement of the illustrious story of the New York Yankees, captured in more than 450 photographs and entertaining anecdotes about all of your favorite players. Year by year from 1903 through 1996, readers will relive the celebration and disappointment of each season. From humble beginnings as the New York Highlanders, to decades of victory, to surprising lapses, the high drama of Yankee baseball is at your fingertips. Enjoy a gold mine of behind-the-scenes stories and astonishing anecdotes that show the Yanks up close -- the players, managers, coaches, and executives, all as they really are. Meet Babe Ruth, Hall of Famer with a passion for late nights and home brew. Find out why Joltin' Joe DiMaggio got steamed for the first time in his life. Learn about the events leading up to Thurman Munson's tragic crash, and the unheeded warning from a fellow Yankee. Here are the straight facts on Reggie Jackson's stormy relationship with Billy Martin and George Steinbrenner's controversial front office tactics. The Yankees: An Illustrated History provides complete statistics and game highlights through the 1996 season and World Championship; on hitting streaks, ERA's, box scores, trades, an all-time roster of managers, players and position leaders by year; American league championship and World Series rosters; All-Star selections, and much, much more.
