Summary

Yankee Stadium: The Official Retrospectiverecounts the story of an extraordinary American landmark. It captures the creation of a home for the New York Yankees that was driven by co-owner Jacob Ruppert, who envisioned a ballpark grander than any other conceived. It takes the reader from the field to the dugout, from the press box to the clubhouse, from principal owner George Steinbrenner's office to Monument Park.But Yankee Stadium was more than a ballpark. The most iconic moments in history have taken place within its walls: Lou Gehrig's poignant farewell; epic heavyweight fights; the "Greatest Football Game Ever Played"; and the unrivaled record-breaking successes of the New York Yankees.With the unprecedented cooperation of the New York Yankees organization, photographs have been culled from every conceivable source. You will walk in the Stadium beside Mantle and Maris, witness the only perfect game in World Series history, and see the Stadium during the 2001 World Series.Yankee Stadium: The Official Retrospectiveis more than just photographs. It is also graced with firsthand accounts of what it was like to be there as history unfolded. It is the power of the place that ledSports Illustratedto call Yankee Stadium the greatest venue of the twentieth century. And only here, within the pages ofYankee Stadium: The Official Retrospective,can you feel what they felt.
