What better time to read about the Yankees than in 2009, when the new Yankee Stadium opens? This gift-worthy volume will capture the audience caught up in the excitement. Nothing defines America like baseball. And nothing defines baseball like the Yankees. From the team's beginnings in 1903 to their World Series championships in '96, '98, '99, and 2000, this album captures that century in words, stats, and pictures. Included are such luminaries as Yogi Berra, Don Larsen, and Bob Sheppard-and portraits of Mickey Mantle, Don Mattingly, Joe DiMaggio, and Derek Jeter. Also included: ? Profiles of the greatest (and worst) Yankees teams ? Quotes, lists, trivia, and tributes ? Tales of fierce rivalries and unforgettable moments ? The hallowed history of "The House that Ruth Built;" the infamous "pine tar incident;" Larsen's perfect game; Lou Gehrig's stirring 1939 speech; the roller coaster ride of the 2001 series; and more... Owning A Yankee Century is like having a clubhouse pass to the most fabled franchise in baseball.
