"If you love baseball, if you love the New York Yankees-you will love this book."-Paul O'Neill

Nothing defines America like baseball. And nothing defines baseball like the Yankees. From their historic beginnings as the New York Highlanders playing in Manhattan's Hilltop Park in 1903, to their reign as the modern-day dynasty that brought Major League Baseball into a new millennium with World Series championships in '96, '98, '99, and 2000, this team has given us a century of triumphs and heartbreaks, legends and lore.

This definitive album captures that century in words, stats, and pictures. Included are such luminaries as Mel Allen, Yogi Berra, Scott Brosius, Andy Carey, Chris Chambliss, Jerry Coleman, Don Larsen, and Bob Sheppard-as well as portraits of the greats-from Mickey Mantle to Don Mattingly, from Vic Raschi to Allie Reynolds, from Joltin' Joe DiMaggio to Derek Jeter. You'll also find:

• Picks and profiles of the greatest (and worst) Yankee 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 during the '56 World Series; Lou Gehrig's stirring 1939 speech; the roller-coaster ride of the 2001 series, and other memorable Yankee moments

For Yankee fans, or anyone who loves baseball, owning A Yankee Century is like having a clubhouse pass to the most fabled franchise in all of sports.
