Overview

The New York Yankees are both the most popular and successful franchise in baseball history. The Bronx Bombers have won 34 American League pennants and 23 World Series championships, and have boasted such legendary performers as Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra, Whitey Ford, and Reggie Jackson. The 1996 team added the latest chapter to their illustrious history with a thrilling World Series championship. Those great players and teams can all be found in The New York Yankee Encyclopedia, the most complete record of Yankee baseball ever published. From their humble beginnings in 1903 as the Highlanders, through nine decades of unforgettable players, teams, and classic games, noted baseball author and historian Harvey Frommer has compiled everything about the history and lore of this fabled club in the one book no true Yankee fan can afford to be without:

  • chapters covering different Yankee eras, great teams, top players, managers, greatest games, biggest rivalries, owners, ball park history, and more
  • Over 250 classic photos, many from the Yankees own archives
  • Statistics of every Yankee player and manager who ever wore a Yankee uniform from Macmillan's Baseball Encyclopedia database
. Just as the ballclub has become, The New York Yankees Encyclopedia is destined to be a sports classic in a league by itself. Harvey Frommer is the author of many noteworthy baseball books including Big Apple Baseball, Shoeless Joe Jackson.
