New York, New York: A Helluva Baseball Town

A lot of New Yorkers think the world revolves around their city. When it comes to baseball books, that’s probably true. More words have been written about their teams than all others combined, and fans can usually count on a number of titles about the Yankees and Mets (with an occasional nod to the Dodgers and Giants of long ago).

This year offers a bonus as we mark the 50th(!) anniversary of the Miracle Mets’ improbable first World Championship.
