How the Yankees Explain New YorkeBook - 2014
An examination of the unique parallels between New York City's evolution and that of the New York Yankees, How the Yankees Explain New York illustrates how the storied history of the Bronx Bombers mirrors that of the Big Apple itself. The oldest professional sports franchise in the city, the Yankees have played in front of sold out crowds in the Bronx for nearly a century, and this work explores the relationship between Wall Street high-rollers and the Yankees' record-setting payroll, describes the "city that never sleeps" through the nighttime antics of Mickey Mantle and Billy Martin, revisits the healing effect of the Yankees' World Series run in the aftermath of 9/11, and much more. Entertaining and insightful, this book is sure to be popular amongst one of sports' most passionate fan bases.
