Synopses & Reviews
No sports team in history has a following quite like the New York Yankees. And with good reason. With thirty-seven pennants and twenty-five World Series victories, the Yankees aren’t just the most successful baseball team of all time, they’re the most successful franchise in the history of sports.
Featuring more than one hundred authentic voices from Yankee history, Bombers tells their colorful history, from the unparalleled abilities and appetites of Babe Ruth to the professional excellence that characterizes the current dynasty. Here you’ll find stories about all the Yankee legends—including DiMaggio, Mantle, Maris, Martin, and Jackson—as well as new information about current key figures like Jeter and O’Neill. Bombers is the story of the team as recalled by the people who actually created the history.
Through painstaking research and probing interviews, Lally reveals the real story behind Ruth’s called shot and the truth about the Giants’ sign stealing in the ’51 Series, and offers a new perspective on the 2000 Subway Series. Yankee fans will love Bombers, but this is a book for all baseball fans, one that illuminates baseball history the way it happened on the field, in the stands, and in the hearts of players and fans.
