Description du produit

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 The Best Complete History on the New York Yankees 15 janvier 2013

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.

As good a great classic book as you will ever read, on the inception of the NY Highlanders/Yankees, the inception of the American League, in an Era, when corrupt Mayors, Police Chiefs, Baseball Team owners, and Politicians, of every walk of life. The men who ran the metropolis cities, in such a time, were more often than not, corrupt, con-men, scam artist, illegal gambling parlors, bordellos, bookies, and other corrupt mob-like men, who made their living by destroying the lives of others. The men in NYC who ran the metropolis through The infamous Tammany Club, a who's who of power brokers in charge of NYC affairs, from where the sub-ways were to be built, train tracks, parks, land barons. These are the men, who almost got away with destroying the credibility of the NY Highlanders owner, and AL President and Founder, Ban Johnson. Against all odds, when Johnson was the owner of the Baltimore Orioles. The NY Giants owner, Freedman, bought the majority stock in the Orioles under Johnson's nose, then proceeded to stock his NY Giants Team with its star players. John McGraw being the major player. After Freedman's bold move to create a Oriole's team in decline by selling off its key players after the majority stock buyout of the Oriole's, Freedman then proceeded to buy all the available land in NY City with his cronies who ran the Tammany Club of NYC.Such attempts to block the move of the Orioles to NY, and desecrate the new found American League (AL), this story is one, that cannot be put down from the readers eyes. It is that impacting and stunning. I thought I knew the basics of the rich yankee history, until I read this book, and the book "Yankee Century" both comparable books, with different eyewitness accounts, journal entries, newspaper articles of different stories, both books are comparable classics, and must reads, for any self discerning Yankee or MLB fan.

Fantastic book! Marty avoids boring baseball fans with the old and worn out stories (he does briefly mention them). There are so many interesting things he brings up that fall into the "Wow! I never knew that before!" category. Great for all Yankee fans, but I think all baseball fans will still enjoy this a lot. Do you know how the Yankees got their name or where Wally Pipp was when Lou Gehrig's consecutive game streak ended? Get the book and find out!

Years down the road, when all is said and done about the Yankees, Marty Appel's "Pinstripe Empire" will stand out as the most comprehensive book ever put together about this remarkable franchise to date. It's a pleasure to read at every level.

From their start in 1903 as The Highlanders to the beginning of 2012, Appel takes the reader through every season. I was hooked by the second page of the narrative. In the "short" space of 574 pages, everything, and I mean everything about the Yankees, is discussed...individual players, managers, coaches, the stadium itself, (in all its recarnations) owners, announcers, team records, night baseball, sound systems, player appreciation days, Old Timers Day, The World Series....well, the list goes on and on.

And there are some funny moments, too. I laughed out loud when Appel described the ill-fated and short-lived Yankee mascot, "Dandy". His sentence on Dandy's demise is the funniest in the book. And who knew that Babe Ruth never "flushed"? Thank Appel for getting them from the lips of clubhouse manager, Pete Sheehy.

One need not be a particular Yankees fan to enjoy this book....the history is worth the read...but it sure helps. "Pinstripe Empire" is a treasure and I highly recommend it.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 A MUST read for Yankee fans 29 octobre 2013

Boy, howdy. Did I ever ENJOY this tome. I have been a New York Yankee fan for 50 years. I thought I knew a lot. I thought I had heard most of it. Was I wrong. This is an interesting, informative, fun, touching, celebration of everything Yankee. I foresee myself reading this again and again every five years or so. It is well-written, brilliantly edited, and although if the subject matter had been handled even a bit differently it would have become encyclopedic, fortunately, it is handled with love and respect. You get it all. The good, the bad, the events, the personalities, and occasionally some mild editorializing. A totally wonderful edition to any Yankee lover's library. I didn't want it to end. The most relaxed and enjoyable 500+ pages I have read in quite some time. Are you a fan of the greatest baseball franchise ever? You must, I repeat, MUST own this book. NOW.
