Since their breakthrough championship season in 1923, when Yankee stadium opened, the New York Yankees have been baseballís most successful, decorated, and colorful franchise. Home to Ruth, Gehrig, DiMaggio, Berra, Mantle, Jackson, and Mattingly; and later Torre, Jeter, Rivera, and Rodriguez, the team has been a fixture in our national consciousness.

Yet itís been nearly seventy years since Frank Graham wrote the last narrative history of the team. Marty Appel, the Yankeesí PR director during the 1970s, now illuminates the team in all its century-plus of glory: clever, maneuvering owners; rowdy, talented players; and, of course, twenty-seven championships. Appel heard war stories from old-timers like Mantle, Berra, and Casey Stengel, and has remained close to the organization ever since. A collector, writer, and raconteur, he gives life to the teamís history, from the muddy, uneven field at Hilltop Park in the 1900s to the evolution of todayís team as an international brand. Loaded with over a centuryís worth of great stories, folklore, and photos, this is a treasure trove for lovers of sports, the Yankees, New York history, and Americaís game.


Marty Appel is the author of many books, including most recently the New York Times bestseller Munson. Following his years as the Yankees' public relations director, he became an Emmy Award-winning television producer and director of Marty Appel Public Relations. Appel lives in New York City and appears frequently on ESPN, HBO, MLB, and the YES Network.
