Believe it or not, the New York Yankees weren't always great. As the Bronx Bombers begin their quest for their 28th World Series championship, Rob Weintraub's new book coaxes us back to the 1923 season when the Yanks were still upstart underdogs hoping to defeat their dreaded cross-town rivals, The New York Giants. The House That Ruth Built recaptures the excitement of a dynasty in the making, led by one mighty hitter who would change the face of baseball. P.S. Weintraub's absorbing narrative is especially timely for a second reason: It heralds the opening of the first Yankee Stadium just as fans are settling into the comforts of the stadium in its third incarnation.
