Yankees World Series Memories
About the Book
The most successful franchise in American sports history, the New York Yankees, have won 26 World Series. Now author Maury Allen recalls the Yankees greatest Series events of the last 60 years starting in 1947 and moving through the Bronx Bombers most recent appearance in 2003. The magical moments are captured through the eyes of the author, the players who made them happen, and the other professional observers of baseballs most electric scenes. Each Series had its own unique contribution to the history of the games most-storied franchise, along with its heroes and its villains, and its miraculous plays and emotional moments. Included are stories from Hank Bauer, who remembers the catch he made against Sal Yvars ending the 1951 series between the Yankees and Bobby Thompsons New York Giants; and Yogi Berra, who talks of the home runs he hit off Don Newcombe of Brooklyn and the fly ball he watched sail over his head in 1960 for Bill Mazeroskis Series-clinching walk-off homer.
