A photo of this book is available. Stated First Printing. NO remainder marks or clippings. No tears on covers. Tight spine, clean pages. Gift inscription in book front, on ... blank page: "Happy Father's Day, 1982 - Love Sue & Gary. NO other writing inside book. NO tears inside book. Pages show tanning. 247 pages. There's no denying that the New York Yankees hold an important place in the history of baseball. With their roster of legendary players, colorful managers, record-setting performances, and unmatched string of championship seasons, the Yankees are one team few fans feel lukewarm about--they either love 'em or hate 'em. Those damn Yankees are also the one major-league organization to have generated enough statistics to make even the most hard-core trivia buff's head swim, and Dom Forker's The Ultimate Yankee Baseball Quiz Book sets out to do just that. Do you know which Giant pitcher ended the Yankees' streak of 12 straight victories with his 6-1 win in the opener of the 1936 World Series? Can you name Joe DiMaggio's birthplace? Who batted .300 for four consecutive years after replacing Babe Ruth in right field? With his almost frightening knowledge of Yankee minutiae, the author must be either a sesquicentenarian with a photographic memory or an insomniac night watchman pulling double shifts at the Cooperstown library. It makes you wonder how he ever found time to actually play baseball. But that's beside the point. The book is put together in a fun, gamelike format, challenging readers to test their skills against an obvious master of Yankee facts. If you happen to know that Earl Wilson threw the pitch that Mickey Mantle hit for his 536th home run, or you just like to annoy people at cocktail parties, then this book is for you. Like the team it sets on a pedestal, The Ultimate Yankee Baseball Quiz Book is unlikely to elicit a mild response--you'll either love it or you'll hate it. --George Laney Product Description Presents nearly 3000 questions about the New York Yankees in such chapters as: Read more Show Less

Meet the Author

Dom Forker's thirty books on baseball have sold more than two million copies. They include The Men of Autumn and Sweet Seasons, works that cover the Yankee glory years of 1949-64, a period during which they won 14 pennants and 9 World Series.

He interviewed 57 former Yankees, including Joe DiMaggio, for the two books. Mel Allen wrote the introduction for The Men of Autumn.

Dom switched his focus from sports to spirituality about ten years ago. Our Lady of Emmitsburg, Roses in December, and Voula; The Power of the Cross are his first three books in the spiritual realm. They are dedicated to the Blessed Mother, to whom he developed a deep spiritual attqachment that blossomed at Mt. St. Mary's University in Emmitsburg, MD.

When asked why he's switched from sports to spirituality, he likes to quip: "'When it gets late in the contest, quite often it's time to change your game plan."

Before he completely changed his "game plan," however, he decided to write one final book on the National Pastime: Joe DiMaggio and Ted Williams: Baseball's Greatest Player and Baseball's Greatest Hitter. They have been the two baseball luminaries during his time who have stood the test of time. In 1969, baseball named Joe Baseball's Greatest Living Player and Ted Baseball's Greatest Living Hitter.

In one season (1941) alone, they set marks that have not been seriously threatened in more than seventy years: Joe hit safely in a record 56 consecutive games, and Ted batted. 406.

Dom, who lives in Milford, NJ, sensed that we may never see their equal again, and so he decided that he would reconnect baseball fans of his generation with Joe and Ted and connect followers of the present era with the Clipper and the Kid.

This is his Farewell to Baseball book. It couldn't get any better, he believes, than Joe and Ted.
