    Om New York City Baseball

    In the heady days after World War II, the nation was ready for excitement and heroes, and a cityNew Yorkwas eager for entertainment. Baseball provided the heroes, and the Yankees, the Giants, and the Dodgerswith their rivalries, their successes, their starsprovided the show. New York City Baseball recaptures the extraordinary decade of 19471957, when the three New York teams were the uncrowned kings of the city. In those ten years, Casey Stengel's Bronx Bombers went to the World Series seven times; ';Joltin'' Joe DiMaggio stepped gracefully aside to make room for a young slugger named Mickey Mantle; Bobby Thomson hit ';the shot heard 'round the world'; and the Brooklyn Dodgers achieved the impossible by beating the Yankees in the 1955 World Series. Over the decade, the teams averaged an astounding 90 wins against 63 losses a season, making it, according to The New York Times, ';a helluva ten years.' Including a new introduction to the 2013 edition and rare interviews with Monte Irvin, Rachel Robinson (Jackies widow), Mel Allen, Duke Snider, Eddie Lopat, Phil Rizzuto, and many more, this book is a must-have for those who want to experience baseball's golden age.
