The most analyzed, scrutinized, and celebrated franchise in the history of professional sports, the New York Yankees have won an unmatched 27 world championships. A long list of Hall of Famers and intriguing characters have colored the history of the team since its inception, and they’ve inspired some legendary sports writing along the way. Covering the entire period of Yankee history, from 1903 to present, The Yankees Baseball Reader brings together the best of this amazing body of work to tell the story of the greatest baseball team on earth.
 
This collection offers a bit of everything. Classic sportswriters like Grantland Rice and Damon Runyon find common ground with modern-day wordsmiths Roger Angell and Thomas Boswell, while excerpts from great baseball biographers Robert W. Creamer and Jane Leavy sit alongside stories and accounts from the players themselves. From memoirs by the likes of Roger Maris and Joe Torre, to controversial tell-alls by Jim Bouton and Sparky Lyle, and of course the humorous musings of Casey Stengel and Yogi Berra, The Yankees Baseball Reader has something for everyone. Articles from prominent newspapers and magazines narrate some of the most memorable moments from Yankee history, and a few choice pieces of poetry and fiction round out this essential reference for any fan of the Bronx Bombers.
