Yet it’s been nearly 70 years since Frank Graham wrote the last narrative history of the team. Marty Appel, the Yankees’ 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, 27 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 team’s history, from the muddy, uneven field at Hilltop Park in the 1900s to the evolution of today’s team as an international brand. Loaded with over a century’s worth of great stories and folklore, this is a treasure trove for lovers of sports, the Yankees, New York history, and America’s game.

Really enjoyed this book. The history of the New York Yankees is long, turbulent and incredible successful, and Mr. Appel nailed it.
Well done, sir.
