REMEMBERING YANKEE STADIUM brilliantly and beautifully documents the stadium’s entire career through a decade-by-decade account, a priceless collection of historical photographs, and, most movingly, the vivid, first-person reminiscences of the people to whom this “citadel of sport” has meant so much: entertainers and politicians, broadcasters and sportswriters, players and fans. No Yankees fan --- no baseball fan --- will be able to resist!

The 1927 New York Yankees assembled perhaps the greatest collection of athletes in history. Harvey Frommer, who has made a cottage industry out of writing about New York baseball, reaffirms that claim with FIVE O'CLOCK LIGHTNING.
