Yankee Pride: The Story of the New York Yankees in the 1960s ... Baseball's Real Golden Age


Click here to view further details.


Yankee Pride tells the story of the New York Yankees during the decade of the 1960s. It chronicles how the team won consecutive American League pennants during the first five years of the 1960s, then turns to the Yankees' fall from glory starting in 1965, and then into the American League cellar in 1966, the first time that the Yankee organization had finished in last place since its pre-Ruthian days of 1912. The story follows how the Yankees returned to respectability in the last three years of the decade, winning on pitching and defense rather than the power-hitting that had been so synonymous with Yankee baseball in the team's glory days.Yankee Pride Cover

Yankee Pride takes you year-by-year, month-by-month, even game-by-game, as the entire decade unfolds before your eyes as you watch the Yankee greats of the 1960s
