61* : the story of Roger Maris, Mickey Mantle and one magical summer by Ron Smith( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It was a line drive into the right field seats at Tiger Stadium, a typical Roger Maris blow that would become lost in the glare of two Mickey Mantle moonshots in the same game. There were no bells or whistles, no grand fanfare or commotion, as the New York Yankees right fielder circled the bases with his first home run of 1961." "Little did anyone suspect that this Maris trot would turn into a home run sprint, unlike any ever witnessed in baseball history. Not even Maris could have envisioned the compelling story that he was about to act out on a national stage, and the emotional toll it would exact. When he rounded third base, when he touched home plate, he was completing the first step in what would become a grueling pursuit of baseball immortality." "The Summer of '61 was pure theater, a New York production without choreography and background music. It was the gripping story of two teammates, two friends and roommates, who waged a monumental battle for the Holy Grail of baseball records. It was Maris, the reluctant star from Fargo, N.D., and Mantle, the dashing heir to the Yankees' superstar throne, daring to challenge the 60-home run legacy of Babe Ruth. It was the Bronx Bombers literally clubbing opponents into submission en route to their 26th American League pennant and 19th World Series Championship." "But more than anything, it was a classic tale of the huge underdog, unappreciated and marked as an intruder to Yankee tradition, overcoming all odds, numerous emotional obstacles and his own frazzled nerves to claim distinction as the most prolific single-season home run hitter in history."--BOOK JACKET

Yankees : a century of greatness by Ron Smith( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The names, like the team they represent, are powerful, mysterious and intimidating, the personification of machine-like efficiency. They inspire a level of pride, emotion and respect that transcends time and tests even the wildest imagination." "Bronx Bombers. Murderer's Row. The House That Ruth Built. The Sultan of Swat and the Bambino. The Iron Horse and Yankee Clipper. Marse Joe, Scooter and the Old Professor. The Mick, Yogi, Whitey, Goose, Mr. October, Louisiana Lightning, Donnie Baseball and The Rocket." "All are linked inexorably to the Yankees. All are colored by the championship aura of the most successful franchise in sports history. Yankees is about an institution, a mindset, a mystique that hangs over New York's psyche like a World Series banner." "Join with The Sporting News on a journey through 100 years of New York baseball, from 1903 when the "Highlanders" played their first game at Hilltop Park after two seasons in Baltimore through the dawning of the 21st century. Relive the team's early struggle, its "Yankees" evolution under Jacob Ruppert and its rise to prominence during the Babe Ruth era. Marvel at the incredible sustained success that has become the cornerstone of a proud baseball legacy - 39 pennants and 26 World Series championships since 1921." "Yankees is not a baseball encyclopedia; it's a celebration of the game's elite franchise, delivered like a Ron Guidry fastball. It's about magical feats and moments, legendary stars, unforgettable supporting players and World Series dominance."--BOOK JACKET
