Editorial Reviews

Foreword Reviews
Brian jensen profiles more than fifty former Bronx Bombers, from the famous to the obscure. All have extraordinary moments to recount, simply for having worn the pinstriped uniform of the most successful franchise in sports history.
Tampa Tribune
Every former player has a story to tell, and Jensen gives his subjects a wide berth. It's an effective tactic and makes for yet another charming book on former Yankees.
Sports Collectors Digest
Players don't just disappear when they leave a particular team. They have lives after baseball, as Jensen reveals in profiling dozens of former Yankees, from doctors Bobby Brown and Doc Medich to preacher Lindy McDaniel.

Booklist - GraceAnn A. DeCandido
Like VH1 tracking down all those old rock singers, Jensen has sought out dozens of former New York Yankee baseball players, reminding us that 1,200 men have worn the Yankee pinstripes and about a third of them are still alive. If you're a Yankee fan, there's a certain pleasure in finding out how all these guys are spending their days.
USA Today Sports Weekly - David Plaut
Those looking for a change of pace from the usual parade of Yankees books may find just what they're looking for in this what-ever-happened-to collection.
