We learn a lot about the team from the Bronx in this fact--filled, entertainingly written opus.

Youa ll be there as: aeo Babe Ruth performs the most debated gesture in sports history aeo Joe DiMaggio reaches one milestone on his way to another aeo "The Wild Man" tames the Dodgers, but the Bombers fail to score aeo Bobby Murcer delivers the game--winning hit just hours after delivering the eulogy at Thurman Munsona s funeral aeo Dave Righetti throws his no--hitter against the Red Sox aeo Don Mattingly shines, but Seattle savors the day aeo Derek Jeter saves the game and the season with a "shovel pass" From the Yankeesa first World Series to the pennant race that pitted Joe DiMaggio against Ted Williams to the Bucky Dent home run game, youa ll have the best seat in the stadium as you experience all the excitement and drama. Featuring fascinating anecdotes and vintage photographs, The 50 Greatest Yankee Games is the perfect book for every Yankee fan and anyone who cherishes the game.
