The Complete New York Yankees: The Total Encyclopedia of the Team (Hardcover)
This ultimate book for the Yankee fan includes every player who ever played for the Yankees even for a single at bat, every statistic--both career and with the Yankees--and every important moment in Yankee history making this the most thorough and eclectic look at the team of Ruth, Gehrig, Mantle, and Jeter ever published. Fascinating stories, lists and biographies offer a complete and insightful overview of the team through its history. All the vital numbers that baseball obsessives covet are here, from the number of stolen bases Queenie O'Rourke nabbed in 1908 (4), to the total homers Babe Ruth gave up during his years as a pitcher (10), to the number of strikeouts Catfish Hunter earned in 1975 (177). More than just an incredible collection of baseball numbers, this Yankees tribute reminds fans of blockbuster trades, great players who got away, notable accomplishments by some un-notable Yankee players, and more.
