BeschreibungBetween 1920 and 1964, the Bronx Bombers dominated the
game of baseball. It was a time when baseball players enjoyed an elevated status as national icons, a time when men wearing baggy, flannel uniforms and sporting pancake gloves played for little more than athe love of the game.a In this striking and nostalgic volume featuring many rarely seen photographs, we meet the heroes that were the New York Yankees. The Yankees won 29 American League pennants and 20 World Series during this golden era, their diamond exploits thrilling generations of fans and their statistical achievements becoming familiar numbers in the lore of the game: Babe Ruthas 714 home runs; Lou Gehrigas 2,130 consecutive games played; Joe DiMaggioas 56-game hitting streak; Casey Stengelas 5 straight world championships; Mickey Mantleas 565-foot home run; and Roger Marisas 61 round-trippers. The tradition of excellence began in the 1920s with the Murderersa Row teams, named for their akillera batting lineups, and continued through the early 1960s, by which time the Bronx Bombers had established themselves as the most successful franchise in sports history.
