"They were the four greatest players of Yankee history - four of the greatest ever to play the game. Now you can experience their legendary history, in dramatic words and vintage black-and-white photographs, as originally reported by The New York Times." "The Babe's 700th home run, Gehrig's farewell "Luckiest Man" speech, DiMaggio's fifty-six-game hitting streak, Mantle's Triple Crown. They're all here, in a book all baseball fans will treasure. And a legendary Yankee himself - Hall of
Fame catcher Yogi Berra - has written an introduction looking at the tremendous effect these four sluggers have had on the game and on anyone who follows it." "With vintage photographs, stats, box scores of the great games, and the valedictory obituaries that sum up each player's Hall of Fame career, it's all here - from 1915, when Babe Ruth first came on the scene as a member of the Boston Red Sox (and homered in his first game versus the Yankees), to the heartfelt tributes to Mickey
Mantle when he passed away in 1995. There's no shortage of material for fans to pore over and delight in, whether their favorite player is the Mick, the Yankee Clipper, the Iron Horse, or the Babe - the original Sultan of Swat himself."--BOOK JACKET.
