Book Description 
The New York Yankees ball club is perhaps the most celebrated team in baseball history. Initially known as the Baltimore Orioles, the Yankees moved to New York prior to the start of the 1903 American League season and were known as the Hilltoppers or Highlanders for the first decade of their existence before becoming the Yankees prior to the 1913 season. This day-by-day work chronicles the team from 1903 to the present, focusing on both players and events involving the Yankees. Noted are such milestones as significant trades and personnel moves, administrative issues, player births and deaths, memorable games, and miscellaneous facts.  Value Priced at: $29.95 ~
