Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0670033014, Paperback)

Yankee Stadium, a lavish, anecdotal tribute to "the house that Ruth built," brims with colorful characters on and off the field: managers, players, owners, some of the greatest sports heroes from Babe Ruth to Lou Gehrig and Jackie Robinson, from Joe DiMaggio to Mickey Mantle, and personalities from Yogi Berra and Phil Rizzuto to Bob Costas and Pete Hamill.

Momentous events mix with obscure but telling human incidents. The course of the great pennant races and World Series championships is touched with the reverie of timeless long-ago summer afternoons. A chronological text is studded with boxed features highlighting special events, milestones, championship lists, and brief essays and reminiscences. Stunning illustrations include both classic images and rare, unpublished photographs. This is a book baseball fans—especially of the Bronx Bomber persuasion—will treasure forever.
