The Spalding World Baseball Tour and the Birth of the American Empire

Inspired and led by sporting magnate Albert Goodwill Spalding, two teams of baseball players circled the globe for six months in 1888-1889 competing in such far away destinations as Australia, Sri Lanka and Egypt. These players, however, represented much more than mere pleasure-seekers. In this lively narrative, Zeiler explores the ways in which the Spalding World Baseball Tour drew on elements of cultural diplomacy to inject American values and power into the international arena. Through his chronicle of baseball history, games, and experiences, Zeiler explores expressions of imperial dreams through globalization's instruments of free enterprise, webs of modern communication and transport, cultural ordering of races and societies, and a strident nationalism that galvanized notions of American uniqueness. Spalding linked baseball to a U.S. presence overseas, viewing the world as a market ripe for the infusion of American ideas, products and energy. Through globalization during the Gilded Age, he and other Americans penetrated the globe and laid the foundation for an empire formally acquired just a decade after their tour.

PINSTRIPE PATRONAGE

Political patronage - awarding discretionary favors in exchange for political support - is alive and well in 21st century America. This book examines the little understood patronage system, showing how it is used by 'pinstripe' elites to subvert the democratic process. 'Pinstripe patronage' thrives on the billions of dollars distributed by government for the privatisation of public services. Martin and Susan Tolchin introduce us to government grants specified for the use of an individual, corporation, or community and 'hybrid agencies', with high salaries for top executives and board members. In return for this corporate welfare pinstipe partons giving politicians the ever-increasing funds needed to conduct their political campaigns. As budget cuts begin to bite, the authors argue that it is time to clamp down on the corrupt practice of pinstripe patronage.

Even before the heyday of Von Dutch and Big Daddy, the ultimate way to personalize your car or motorcycle was to lay some wicked lines on top of the paintwork. Done with a steady hand and an eye for style, pinstripes speak volumes. In How to Pinstripe, acclaimed veteran striper Alan Johnson teaches you everything you need to know to get started, to further your mastery of the form, or to simply understand how a good design comes together. Following a primer on the history and evolution of pinstriping, this book launches into a step-by-step guide to the pinstriping process--from choosing paint and brushes that suit your style and abilities, to preparing surfaces, experimenting with symmetrical and asymmetrical designs, striping freehand, and using grids and patterns. While stressing the importance of finding your own style and having fun with the hobby, Johnson also explains the basics of color theory and unique considerations for antique and classic cars, hot rods and customs, and motorcycles. For more advanced pinstripers, theres also tried-and-true advice on apprenticing and working car shows. Illustrated with color photography throughout, How to Pinstripe is the perfect source for beginners and veterans alike.

Now Updated Through the 2020 Season An exciting history of the world's greatest baseball team from a former Yankees Public Relations Officer. "A riveting and comprehensive history of the Yankees" – New York Times Is there a sports team more synonymous with winning than the New York Yankees? The team of Ruth, Gehrig, DiMaggio, Berra, Ford, Mantle, Jackson, Mattingly? Of Torre, Jeter, and Rivera? Of forty American League pennants, twenty-seven World Championships, and nearly forty Hall of Famers? Like so many great American institutions, the Yankees began humbly, on the muddy, uneven grass of Hilltop Park. Eighteen years later the little second-class franchise won its first pennant. Today, the Yankees are worth more than a billion dollars. It's been nearly seventy years since Frank Graham wrote the last narrative history of the Yankees. Marty Appel, the Yankees' PR director during the 1970s, now illuminates the team in its hundred-plus years of glory: clever, maneuvering owners; rowdy, talented players; great stories behind the great stories. Appel heard tales from old-timers like Waite Hoyt, Bill Dickey, Yogi Berra, Phil Rizzuto, and Whitey Ford, and has remained close to the organization ever since. He gives life to the team's history, from the demise of Hilltop Park in the 1900s to the evolution of today's team as an international brand. With a wealth of photographs, this is a treasure trove for lovers of sports, the Yankees, New York history, and America's game.

 More than 300 ballplayers have spent time with both the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees, opposing teams in one of the most intense rivalries ever in sports. This book examines the century long antagonism between the two clubs, their storied pasts and their evolution during the 20th century. Several what-ifs are considered: what if Babe Ruth had never been traded from the Red Sox to the Yankees? What if the clubs had swapped Joe DiMaggio for Ted Williams, as was proposed by the owners of both teams? What if Alex Rodriguez had gone to Boston, as was originally intended, rather than to New York? The debate as to which team has made out better with shared players is explored.

The New York Yankees’ history is filled with great achievements, outstanding performances, and unprecedented success. For more than 40 years, from 1921 to 1964, the Yankees and their fans had much to cheer about—the team won 29 pennants and 20 world championships and featured such greats as Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle, Bill Dickey, Yogi Berra and Whitey Ford. Yankee haters waited endlessly for the fall of the seemingly unbeatable team from New York, and finally, in 1965, the Yankees began to flounder. The team didn’t win anything for the next eleven years. Each losing season, from 1965 through 1975, is fully covered in this book. The author maintains that in their long losing streak and mediocrity, the Yankees somehow acquired a more endearing quality that had not previously existed. The team that had once offered its fans Ruth, Gehrig, DiMaggio, Mantle and other greats now offered Bill Robinson, Danny Cater, Jerry Kenney and Jake Gibbs, and standouts Bobby Murcer, Mel Stottlemyre, Thurman Munson and Roy White—men who knew the Yankees’ long and glorious history, but also knew first-hand the decade of frustration and disappointment that Yankees players and fans had to live through.

The craft of pinstriping dates back centuries, when carriages of royalty were painted with fine lines of exquisite detail and design. Twelve-year-old Derek Moody lives at The Greasy Spoon, a struggling roadside mart and garage. Over three days he learns that the man he calls "Dad" is not his father, and he meets Kelly Williams, the cute niece of a big customer. When the two are later caught behaving as curious adolescents, the Moodys lose the Williams business and Derek loses his new best friend. Anxious to make amends, Derek begins pinstriping customers' cars with seasoned expertise, skill he attributes to Kelly and their last encounter. He leaves home at 18, well on his way to fortune and fame. At a hot rod show he meets Cecil Caldwell, a Matchbox car vendor, and his personal life appears equally successful. Until a freak injury threatens his career at age 26. For anyone who ever grinned at a nicely-painted car, and everybody who never completely forget their first love, and anyone who ever knew the joy of a dog or the bliss of a dysfunctional family, Pinstripes is about trust and duplicity, faith and despair, cherry Chapstick and cherry-flavored pancake syrup. And the fine lines that separate all of them. After writing copy for the San Francisco offices of three international advertising agencies, John Frazier began freelancing in 1987. He has written for clients from almost all industries, including high technology, financial, automotive, publishing, food and consumer goods, and for virtually every medium.

Clients have included Apple, IBM, AT&T, Hewlett-Packard, Blue Cross and Blue Shield, and Levi Strauss. For an even longer period of time, John has been fascinated by cars shiny and fast. He had his first Hot Wheels track as a young grade schooler, and attended the famed Oakland Roadster Show as a young teenager, providing his first serious look at mag wheels, chrome head covers and pinstriping, the fine lines of paint adorning the hottest of rods with flames and flourishes. Although his first car, a 1970 Plymouth Roadrunner, did not sport pinstripes, it did go fast. Among his favorite movies of the era were Vanishing Point and Dirty Mary and Crazy Larry, two tributes to muscle cars and man's insatiable need for speed. In his spare time John listens to too much Sinatra.

Covering these topics and more, Stefan Gesterkamp leads the reader through the concours painting process. Whether doing it themselves or hiring a professional, the car's owner gains a solid foundation of knowledge before investing significant time and money into a paint project.
