Overview

The names, like the team they represent, are powerful, mysterious and intimidating, the personification of machine-like efficiency. They inspire a level of pride, emotion and respect that transcends time and tests even the wildest imagination. Bronx Bombers. Murderer's Row. The House That Ruth Built. The Sultan of Swat and the Bambino. The Iron Horse and Yankee Clipper. Marse Joe, Scooter and the Old Professor. The Mick, Yogi, Whitey, Goose, Mr. October, Louisiana Lightning, Donnie Baseball and The Rocket. All are linked inexorably to the Yankees. All are colored by the championship aura of the most successful franchise in sports history. Yankees is about an institution, a mindset, a mystique that hangs over New York's psyche like a World Series banner. Join with The Sporting News on a journey through 100 years of New York baseball, from 1903 when the "Highlanders" played their first game at Hilltop Park after two seasons in Baltimore through the dawning of the 21st century. Relive the team's early struggle, its "Yankees" evolution under Jacob Ruppert and its rise to prominence during the Babe Ruth era. Marvel at the incredible sustained success that has become the cornerstone of a proud baseball legacy -- 38 pennants and 26 World Series championships since 1921. Yankees is not a baseball encyclopedia; it's a celebration of the game's elite franchise, delivered like a Ron Guidry fastball. It's about magical feats and moments, legendary stars, unforgettable supporting players and World Series dominance. It's a story of excess -- Yankee Stadium, the grandest theater in baseball history, and the visionary men who passionately built the model by which sports success will forever be measured. Allow us to share the Yankees experience -- the exploits of such legends as Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio and Mickey Mantle; the managerial genius of Miller Huggins, Joe McCarthy, Casey Stengel and Joe Torre; the World Series magic of Don Larsen, Billy Martin, Reggie Jackson a
