About the Book

The Devil Wears Pinstripes: George STEINBRENNER, the SATANS of Swat, and the SELLING of Baseball's Soul

In THE DEVIL WEARS PINSTRIPES, Jim Caple, ESPN.com’s "designated Yankee hater," takes on the rabid fans of baseball’s 26-time World Champions, and offers a decidedly different slant on the New York Yankees --- the losers of 13 World Series.

Caple delivers his send-up of the evil empire with scathing irony, laying waste to all things Yankees. A creative and unauthorized timeline pokes fun at the organization’s trades, its legendary vanity, and its near-lethal stadium food. He skewers the owners, coaches and players --- from the target of all targets George Steinbrenner to the pinstriped icons in the House That Ruth Built. Heroes and lesser mortals appear in all their tarnished glory, whether they’re participating in a World Series shutout, in drunken brawls at strip joints, or engaging in the notorious wife-swapping incident of the 1970s.

Die-hard Yankee haters and the fans of all other baseball teams are sure to appreciate this hilariously provocative diatribe.
