This comprehensive, year-by-year history of baseballs most storied franchise is a treasure trove of breezy writing, nostalgic photography, thorough bibliography, and enough team statistics to overload a disk drive. Yet what puts The Yankees in a league of its own is its magnificent series of essays on some of the most colorful personalities ever to stride onto a ball field by some of the best scribes ever to haunt a press box: Grantland Rice on Babe Ruth, Paul Gallico on Lou Gehrig, Red Smith on Casey Stengel, and thats just the start. Its this kind of packaging thats making Temple University Presss Baseball in America and Baseball Encyclopedia series--the lineup also includes volumes on the Cubs, White Sox, Phillies, Braves, and Indians--real winners.
