Overview

The New York Yankees have won more league titles and World Series championships than any other franchise, thanks in large part to Hall of Famers such as Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Lefty Gomez, Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle and Yogi Berra. But stars alone have not made the Yankees the greatest of franchises, though. Little or nothing until now has been written about the supporting casts that helped the Yankees dominate baseball.

Lou Clinton, Rip Coleman, Russ Derry, Charlie Devens, Ryne Duren, Allen Gettel, Steve Hamilton, Billy Hunter, Deron Johnson, Don Johnson, "Little Ray" Kelly, Cliff Mapes, Bob Martyn, Lindy McDaniel, Irv Noren, Duane Pillette, Bill Renna, Steve Souchock, Bob Turley, and Dooley Womack tell their New York stories. Teammates of Ruth, DiMaggio and Mantle talk about their playing days and the men with whom they played. This is Yankee history from the early 1920s into the 1970s, by the men who made it.
