Présentation de l'éditeur

Is there a sports team more synonymous with winning than the New York Yankees? The team of Ruth, Gehrig, DiMaggio, Berra, Ford, Mantle, Jackson, Mattingly? Of Torre, Jeter, and Rivera? Of forty American League pennants, twenty-seven World Championships, and nearly forty Hall of Famers?

Like so many great American institutions, the Yankees began humbly, on the muddy, uneven grass of Hilltop Park. Eighteen years later the little second-class franchise won its first pennant. Today, the Yankees are worth more than a billion dollars.

It’s been nearly seventy years since Frank Graham wrote the last narrative history of the Yankees. Marty Appel, the Yankees’ PR director during the 1970s, now illuminates the team in its hundred-plus years of glory: clever, maneuvering owners; rowdy, talented players; great stories behind the great stories. Appel heard tales from old-timers like Waite Hoyt, Bill Dickey, Yogi Berra, Phil Rizzuto, and Whitey Ford, and has remained close to the organization ever since. He gives life to the team’s history, from the demise of Hilltop Park in the 1900s to the evolution of today’s team as an international brand. With a wealth of photographs, this is a treasure trove for lovers of sports, the Yankees, New York history, and America’s game.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 All Lovers of Baseball and sports should read this book 19 mai 2012
Par The Greatest American Sport - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Pinstripe Empire is the first true, behind the scenes look at the depth and history of the most famous and storied franchise in the history of sports.
It is a classic example of a book that once you start, you cannot stop and you can't wait to pick it back up. The ease of the read is a real testament to
Marty Appel's writing ability and incredible knowledge of the New York Yankees. The way Appel flows from one story to another throughtout the incredible
history that is the New York Yankees is nothing short of remarkable! The best part of this book is how many new
and previously unheard stories are contained within. If you are a lover of sports and Americana, this book is the number one read for this
summer. Loved it!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Thank You Marty Appel 10 mai 2012

I am not a baseball fanatic, but am a fan of the author's previous books. So it is no suprise that he has hit this one out of the park. Before reading the Pinstripe Empire I knew of the Yankees. Now that I have, I know why they are woven into the fabric of New York City and into the hearts of Yankee fans. Being a New York gal, of course I knew of The Babe, Lou Gehrig and even of Leo Durocher. I did not know the origins of the club, who and why they started the team, or how much just living in this great city I knew about the team and its history. Whether you are a fan of the Yankees, come from the Bronx or Brooklyn, or a fan of baseball -- if you love a good tale complete with heros, this is a must read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Best Complete History on the New York Yankees 15 janvier 2013
Par Bill Emblom - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
I haven't read any of the previous reviews, but I will contribute my thoughts on Marty Appel's 574 page text in addition to photos, appendix, bibliography, and index that he has put together. There have been many books written about the Bronx Bombers, but I feel Marty Appel's effort covering the entire history of the team from its beginnings in 1902 when Bill Devery and Frank Farrell purchased the Baltimore franchise and moved it to New York and played at Hilltop Park through Yankee Stadium II and the 2011 season is the ultimate book on the team's history. In addition for several of those years Marty has been there as an employee of the team and he was there to see first-hand what too place. Marty does not take sides one way or another regarding players, manager, or owners, but presents the team's history as he found it in his research.

What I especially like about the book are the numerous anecdotes about the managers, players, and owners. You may think you have heard all of the stories regarding the Yankees, but I came across several I have never heard before. Marty asked clubhouse man Pete Sheehy, "Tell me about the Babe." Instead of giving Marty a lengthy story or two about Ruth, Sheehy's five word reply was a classic. One thing in particular I like about the book is what it doesn't give us. We are not "treated" to numerous game-by-game details about how runs were scored. I find this to be very tiring in books. I repeat. I did not find this to be the case in this book.

I did find two errors in the book in addition to a spelling error and a word usage error. I will point them out, not to be critical, but in case the author wishes to make the changes in the paperback edition. On page 223 Lou Gehrig's death is listed as June 3rd of 1941 when the date should be June 2nd instead. On page 235 the year the St. Louis Browns moved to Baltimore is listed as 1953 when the correct year should be 1954. On page 340 approximately one-fourth of the way down the page the word pastime is incorrectly spelled as "passtime." And finally near the bottom of page 456 the word "used" is incorrectly used instead of "using." Again, I point these errors out, not to be critical, but if the author wishes to make changes in the paperback edition.

The book contains two sections of photos, both color and black and white which amply includes all parts of the team's history. Several of these photos I have never seen before.

Whether you are a Yankee hater, Yankee lover, and just a fan interested in baseball history Marty Appel has given us an outstanding history of one of the game's greatest franchises. If you claim to be a baseball fan then you need this book in your library.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 DEFINITIVE + AWESOME 8 mai 2012
Par NYbaseballFAN - Publié sur Amazon.com

I got a copy of this book in advance of the release date, it is by far the most interesting, informative, and fun read on the Yankees I have ever come across. Mr. Appel does a great job weaving through the fascinating history of the most storied franchise in all of sports, all the while keeping you excited and bargaining as to why you should read just one more chapter. An obvious must for any Yankee fan, but really for any sports fan, as so much of what modern baseball is was sculpted by this franchise, whether you love them or hate them. This book will be the definitive Yankee/baseball book for years to come!

If you are a regular Behind the Bombers/BehindtheBombers.com reader there is no reason to explain who Marty Appel is. But to those of you who don't know who he is he is a long time Yankees author, one time Yankees PR person and a big baseball fan. He started his Yankees career answering Mickey Mantle's fan mail and wound up an award winning Yankee telecast producer for WPIX in NYC. He penned many Yankee books including two fantastic books on Yankee Legend Thurman Munson.

You can insert just about every cliché right here as this book is worth all that praise and more. You can see this book is a labor of love that was a lifetime in the making. It is a chronological history the Pinstripes full of facts with little chestnuts added by the author that shows the human side of the team that we all love. Even if you don't love the Yankees or just won't admit you do, the structure of this book makes it not just one of the best Bomber books around but one of the finest baseball books around.

You can't get anymore Yankee than this with a Foreward by Yogi Berra and Preface by Bernie Williams. Both of those players are well represented in this fine book.

There are fact supported by very interesting tidbits throughout the book. For instance the author delivers the facts about 1935 that Lou Gehrig was named captain by Joe McCarthy (first one since Everett Scott) that year, which is widely know, but he also points out that it was the only year Gehrig didn't have to share the stage with Babe Ruth or Joe DiMaggio. Sort of like the link year between the Babe and Joe D.

The book is full of stuff like this brings me up to speed on the years before my Yankee comprehension started. The descriptions are so personal that it made me feel like I lived it myself. The stories that occurred during my fandom blew some cobwebs off my own memory bring back some (mostly) good times and some not so good.

This book is the book to go out and pre order this way when it is released on May 8th you can read it by the time Old Timer's Day comes along. This way when the introductions take place you can have stories fresh in your mind. Some that you live and some you relive. As the title says "The New York Yankees From Before The Babe To After The Boss." If it's not in here it didn't happen yet. Throughout the season I will be discussing passages from this book hoping to rekindle your memories as well as mine.
