A revised and expanded edition of
The New York Yankees:
Legendary Sports Teams! The New York Yankees played their first
game in the American League in 1903. Since then, they have become the best team
in baseball, bar none. Now this action-packed and fact-filled volume brings the
Yankee's great history to life. From Babe Ruth's called shot and Lou Gehrig's
tearful farewell speech, to Reggie Jackson's three hits on three pitches and
Derek Jeter's game-saving catches, classic moments are recounted with such
vivid description that readers will swear they can smell the popcorn and hear
the crack of the bat. Updated content includes team records and post-season
results from 1903 to 2011, as well as lists of Yankees inducted into the Hall
of Famers and photos of the most memorable plays and people in Yankee history.
