Harvey Frommer is the celebrated author of more than 33 sports books, including the classics Shoeless Joe and Ragtime Baseball, New York City Baseball, as well as The New York Yankee Encyclopedia. He was also a writer at Yankees magazine for 16 years and we at the Pinstripe Press have been fans of his work for quite some time. We are honored to have permission to reprint some of his work here on The Highlander and highly recommend his books to baseball fans everywhere.

Nothing defines America like baseball. And nothing defines baseball like the Yankees. From their historic beginnings as the New York Highlanders playing in Manhattan's Hilltop Park in 1903, to their reign as the modern-day dynasty that brought Major League Baseball into a new millennium with World Series championships in '96, '98, '99, and 2000, this team has given us a century of triumphs and heartbreaks, legends and lore.

"A definitive chronology of one of America's
legendary sports teams."

"A must have for Yankee fans and baseball fans."

"Frommer slices and dices information about the team in thousands of ways. If there is a statistic about the team a reader wants to know, more than likely it can be found in the pages of this compilation. Trivia buffs could spend months digesting all the information that Frommer has collected in this easily accessible work... Yankee fans who can't learn enough about their favorite team will think they died and went to heaven..."

"If you love baseball, if you love the New York Yankees, you will love this book."
- Paul O'Neill
