Description - Wonder Team by TRACHTENBERG

The Wonder Team describes in detail the year 1927, when the New York Yankees became the Wonder Team probably baseball s best team ever. That club included Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Waite Hoyt, Tony Lazzeri, Earle Combs, Herb Pennock, Bob Meusel, and Wilcy Moore. Also part of the narrative are recollections by owner Colonel Jacob Ruppert, manager Miller Huggins, business manager Ed Barrow, and scout Paul Krichell. No participant of that great team is omitted. In detailing the events leading to the 1927 World Series, Leo Trachtenberg weaves players profiles and histories along with those of the Yankee owner, management, coaches, scouts, trainer, and batboy/mascot. Also included are 1927 statistics and photos from Yankee archives."
