Two years after the establishment of the American Baseball League in 1901, New Yorkers Frank Farrell and Bill Devery purchased the American League Baltimore Orioles for $18,000 and moved the franchise to New York. They built a stadium in Washington Heights and called the team the Highlanders. This was the humble beginning of the legendary New York Yankees, who went on to be the greatest winning team of the twentieth century. This fascinating pictorial history of the Yankees chronicles the evolution of the team between 1903 and 1928. Featured are rare and spectacular photographs of players, managers, the early spring training sites, and Hilltop Park. Highlights include the team's rivalry with John McGraw's New York Giants; the story of pitcher Jack Chesbro, who despite his record forty-one wins, lost the pennant because of a wild pitch in the last game of the season; the construction of Yankee Stadium, completed in 1923; and the development by 1927 of one of the Yankees' greatest teams, which included Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig.

The New York Yankees are one of baseball's most iconic franchises and as much a part of New York as the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building. From Joe DiMaggio and Derek Jeter to Babe Ruth and Masahiro Tanaka, from Hall of Famers to rookie busts, the Yankees are baseball's most beloved franchise. Jim Kaat, who has the unique experience of playing for the Yankees as well as calling games for them in the booth, had a prime seat to watch it all unfold. In this book, Kaat and Greg Jennnings provide a closer look at the great moments and the lowlights that have made the Yankees one of baseball's keystone teams. Through the words of the players, via multiple interviews conducted with current and past Yankees, readers will meet the players, coaches, and management and share in their moments of greatness and defeat. Readers will find access to the clubhouse as Kaat recounts moments such as Jeter's last contest at Yankee Stadium; David Wells' perfect game; and the elation of the 1996, 1998, 1999, and 2000 World Series championships. It is a book that New York baseball fans will not want to be without.
