Overview

A revised and expanded edition of The New York Yankees: Legendary Sports Teams! The New York Yankees played their first game in the American League in 1903. Since then, they have become the best team in baseball, bar none. Now this action-packed and fact-filled volume brings the Yankee's great history to life. From Babe Ruth's called shot and Lou Gehrig's tearful farewell speech, to Reggie Jackson's three hits on three pitches and Derek Jeter's game-saving catches, classic moments are recounted with such vivid description that readers will swear they can smell the popcorn and hear the crack of the bat. Updated content includes team records and post-season results from 1903 to 2011, as well as lists of Yankees inducted into the Hall of Famers and photos of the most memorable plays and people in Yankee history.

The book it's self is OK but I am gonna list some minor problems. 1. It only has like 75 pages so savor it. 2. It says that the babe did'nt do the called shot but I think he did but thats not the problem, the problem is that he is TRYING to get you to belive that it did'nt happen, and that just isn't right. 3. it's kind of offensive since he's kinda saying that the Yankees are the best team in baseball I mean you can go for them but you don't have to rub it in our faces. 4. Why not write a book about another team? I mean Matt Cristopher is pretty much has a huge obsession with the Yankees.

This book serves its purpose. Though, since I am a school newspaper esitor and writer, Matt Christopher has written a clever book about the Yankees an their history. He has written two other books, also about sports, On the Court With Venus and Serena Williams and Yao Ming. Matt has the taste in his books, I reccomend them to 7-8 year olds. - Adrianna Lawson, School Newspaper Writer and Editor
