Overview

Yankee Stadium: The Official Retrospective recounts the story of an extraordinary American landmark. It captures the creation of a home for the New York Yankees that was driven by co-owner Jacob Ruppert, who envisioned a ballpark grander than any other conceived. It takes the reader from the field to the dugout, from the press box to the clubhouse, from principal owner George Steinbrenner's office to Monument Park.

But Yankee Stadium was more than a ballpark. The most iconic moments in history have taken place within its walls: Lou Gehrig's poignant farewell; epic heavyweight fights; the "Greatest Football Game Ever Played"; and the unrivaled record-breaking successes of the New York Yankees.

With the unprecedented cooperation of the New York Yankees organization, photographs have been culled from every conceivable source. You will walk in the Stadium beside Mantle and Maris, witness the only perfect game in World Series history, and see the Stadium during the 2001 World Series.

Yankee Stadium: The Official Retrospective is more than just photographs. It is also graced with firsthand accounts of what it was like to be there as history unfolded. It is the power of the place that led Sports Illustrated to call Yankee Stadium the greatest venue of the twentieth century. And only here, within the pages of Yankee Stadium: The Official Retrospective, can you feel what they felt.

    Great Gift

    This past holiday season I bought the book Yankee Stadium for my daughter. Her 22 year old eyes lit up when she opened it up. It now sits prominently on her coffee table in Red Sox Nation territory Boston. I am glad to say that during her 5 years up there she has maintained her fandom for the NY Yankees and this book helps her to show that off.

    Great Memories about Yankee Stadium

    A must have for any New York Yankee Fan. This Coffee Table Book has some really remarkable photography of Yankee Stadium. The timing of the release of the book was great because this was the last year of the old Yankee Stadium. As a child, who grew up in the 50's and 60's, this one really made me misty. This book would a a great Holiday Gift for the year 2008!

    Great Memories about Yankee Stadium

    A must have for any Yankee Fan. This Coffee Table Book has some really remarkable photography of Yankee Stadium. The timing of the release of the book was great because in September, 2008; the last game was played at the old Yankee Stadium. As a child who grew up in the 50's and 60's, this one really made me misty.

    'The' Stadium

    As a 58 year old born in Brooklyn, I think it's a fantastic book. Anyone who has been to the park will enjoy the book. I did find one error, however. In the section dealing with multiple home runs in a game, it states that Tony L. had one in 1827. Wow!!! Talk about longevity. jb

    I read and early copy and must say how impressed I am with the package. The photos are beautiful and the history of events this book covers is amazing. Its details a piece of NY history about the stadium that is more than just the Yankees. It will make a great gift for fans and history buffs.
