Publisher Comments:

Whitey Ford, a Hall of Fame pitcher with the Yankees for 16 seasons, gives unique insight and takes on the challenge of selecting the five best players at each position in the franchise's history, which includes 26 World Series championships and 36 American League pennants—a legacy no other team comes close to achieving.

As one of the greatest Yankee pitchers ever, Ford gives his assessment of all the current and former Yankee greats in a book that will delight, provoke, amuse, and challenge baseball fans of all ages. Photos.
