Description

Get the complete story of the Yankees, from Babe Ruth to Derek Jeter-with twenty-seven World Championships in between-in this "enormous home run" (Kirkus Reviews) of a middle grade adaptation of Pinstripe Empire, a celebrated keepsake for every baseball fan full of black and white photos from author and former Yankees PR director Marty Appel. The New York Yankees are the team of Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Yogi Berra, Whitey Ford, Mickey Mantle, Don Mattingly, Reggie Jackson, Mariano Rivera, Derek Jeter, and Carlos Beltran; the team of forty American League pennants, twenty-seven World Championships, and nearly forty Hall of Famers. With more than a century's worth of great stories, anecdotes, and photos, plus an introduction by Yankee television broadcaster Michael Kay, Marty Appel-who Bob Costas calls "a fine storyteller with a keen eye for detail"-tells the complete story of the Yankees from their humble beginnings, with no stadium to call their own, to today, when the team's billion-dollar franchise presides over a rebuilt Yankee Stadium. Middle grade sports lovers, baseball fans, and Yankee acolytes will find a treasure trove of facts, tales, and insider details in Pinstripe Pride.
