Overview

Game of My Life New York Yankees: 20 Stories of Yankees Baseball by David Buscema

Along with taking readers behind the scenes of the greatest moments in Yankees history from Bucky Dents home run to David Wellss perfect game this book offers a glimpse of what helped stars like Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera, and Yogi Berra reach their peak. Jorge Posada made up for the dream his father lost as a political prisoner in Cuba. Ron Guidry hunted from the time he was a boy to help his hard-working father put food on the table. Mel Stottlemyre, who lost a son to leukemia, picked a seemingly meaningless regular-season game because my boys didnt think I could do it. Joe Torre first started organizing games in the park as he took refuge from his bully of a father. Don Mattingly recounts the thrill of proving he could perform on the October stage and the decision to walk away from the game without a World Series ring so he could spend time with his family. Reggie Jackson details his difficulty in adjusting to the Yankees and the eventual World Series glory he experienced.
