The worst team money could buy : the collapse of the New York Mets by Bob Klapisch( Book )
2 editions published between 1993 and 2005 in English and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Veteran newspaperman Bob Klapisch and John Harper reveal the extraordinary inside story of the Mets' decline and fall - with the sort of detail and uncensored quotes that never run in a family newspaper. From the sex scandals that plagued the club in Florida to the puritanical, no-booze rules of manager Jeff Torborg, from bad behavior on road trips to the downright ornery practical "jokes" that big boys play, The Worst Team Money Could Buy is a grandslam classic."--BOOK JACKET
Pride and pinstripes : the Yankees, Mets, and surviving life's challenges by Mel Stottlemyre( Book )
2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is the unique story of a beloved baseball man who has carried himself with great dignity through a lifetime of tragedy and triumph. More than a star pitcher and accomplished coach, Mel Stottlemyre has a history that serves as a behind-the-scenes tour of four decades of baseball. From Mickey Mantle and Whitey Ford to Dwight Gooden and Darryl Strawberry to Derek Jeter and Mariano Rivera, Stottlemyre connected generations of stars during a remarkable career. The fact that he had a complicated, sometimes bitter relationship with George Steinbrenner for thirty years adds a layer of melodrama to the story of one of the classiest men ever to wear pinstripes, for both the Yankees and the Mets.--From publisher description
