Overview

This is a history of the New York Yankees over a decade which saw them at the top of the American League and at the bottom. Based upon thorough background research and interviews with over 100 former players, the book covers the major stories of the period as well as some not seen elsewhere. The seventh games of the 1960 and 1962 World Series are described in detail, replete with the remembrances of many of the participants. The infamous Phil Linz harmonica incident, the fruitless search for another Mickey Mantle and the surprising emergence of Mel Stottlemyre are some of the stories that make the early '60s such a fascinating era in Yankee lore.

THis is without a doubt the best book that I have read on this subject. I have read "Dog Days" and "The Lean Years of the Yankees" both of which do not hold a candle to this book Highly recommended and if you have any interest in the fall of the Yankees during the 1960's then this is the book for you
