The New York Highlanders played in a makeshift stadium in upper Manhattan, light years removed from the team they would evolve into, a team called the New York Yankees, winners of a record 27 World Series.
With a parade of stars from Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig to Joe DiMaggio and Mickey Mantle, the Yankees became baseball’s most dominant franchise and re-wrote the game’s history with home run record-setters Ruth, Roger Maris and Aaron Judge.
Award winning sportswriter Hal Bock traces the history from its earliest years to becoming the face of Major League Baseball.
