It covers everyone from Ruth to Mickey Mantle, Alex Rodriguez, Joe DiMaggio, Lou Gehrig, Reggie Jackson, Derek Jeter, Aaron Judge, and many more pinstripe players, past and present, in an easy-to-read format. Some of the many dingers featured include: Graig Nettles's home run on Opening Day 1974, when the Yankees called Shea Stadium home Jorge Posada's and Bernie Williams's switch-hit home runs during the same game in 2000 Pitcher Whitey Ford's third and final home run of his career Aaron Judge's 50th home run of the season, a rookie record And many more!

The meteoric rise of the new generation of superstar Yankees, including Aaron Judge, Gary Sanchez, Greg Bird, and Luis Severino, now joined by Giancarlo Stanton—from the “inside baseball” strategy in assembling the roster, their fascinating paths to Yankee Stadium, and a mission to hoist the franchise's twenty-eighth World Series championship trophy. “A must-read for anyone who wants to understand who these new Yankees are, and where they are going.” —Ken Rosenthal, MLB Network and FOX Sports Derek Jeter and the “Core Four” have passed the torch to a new generation of Yankees superstars—featuring Aaron Judge, Gary Sanchez, Luis Severino, and Greg Bird—who have powered through the minors to become stars on baseball’s biggest stage. Joined by reigning National League MVP Giancarlo Stanton, this thrilling group is poised to chase championship titles for years to come. The Baby Bombers details the inside-baseball strategy of the Yankees’ pivot to a younger, more exciting roster, the players’ fascinating paths to Yankee Stadium, their memorable 2017 playoff run, their amazing assaults on the record books, and a unified mission to hoist the franchise’s twenty-eighth World Series trophy. Through new, in-depth interviews, veteran reporter Bryan Hoch fleshes out the transition from Jeter to Judge, scoring behind-the-scenes insights from general manager Brian Cashman, former manager Joe Girardi, executives and scouts, members of the current roster, opponents, and Yankees legends of the past. Winning baseball in the Bronx will resume with postseason hero Aaron Boone in the manager’s chair, aiming to steer the franchise to its forty-first World Series appearance. Featuring nearly fifty photographs, The Baby Bombers tracks the rise of today’s Yankees from fresh-faced rookies into a group that is destined for pinstriped greatness. “A new generation of stars are developing right before our eyes, and Bryan Hoch is the right journalist to chronicle this exciting time for Yankees fans.

Drawn from more than 60 interviews and hours of face time, this authorized biography offers an unprecedented inside-the-dugout look at the manager who guided the New York Yankees to their 27th world championship. Beginning with his childhood in the baseball mecca of Chicago, this book traces Joe Girardi's rise from a catcher at Northwestern University to his time in the minors, his 15 years in the majors, and his successful career as a manager. As much a character portrait of the man as a chronicle of his achievements, this study reveals the amalgam of influences--the relentless work ethic learned from his father combined with the systematic mind of an engineer, the baseball know-how instilled by the likes of Don Zimmer and Joe Torre, and the heart of his tenacious mother--that combined to propel Girardi to his current stature.

This new addition to the Game of My Life series takes a personal look inside the biggest moments of the Mets’ greatest and most beloved players, from journeymen to superstars. Their most unforgettable games paint a picture of Mets history, as the franchise morphed from a dismal (though lovable) expansion team in 1962 to World Series Champions in 1969 and 1986 and then back to basement dwellers before meeting the Yankees in the 2000 Subway Series, and evolving into the current, highly promising squad. Fan favorite Ron Swoboda recounts making “The Catch.” Infielder Wally Backman relives the many thrills of playing on the ’86 Mets as they marched to a championship. All-Star Edgardo Alfonzo describes going six-for-six, including three home runs, in one of the most dominating offensive games in baseball history. Right-hander Bobby Jones recalls pitching the most dominating postseason game in Mets history, when he threw a one-hit shutout to clinch the 2000 National League Division Series against the San Francisco Giants. Current catcher Travis d’Arnaud shares his thoughts on his young career with the Mets, and describes his best game thus far. Journalist Michael Garry, a lifelong Mets fan, also includes stories about Tom Seaver, Mike Piazza, and David Wright, among others. Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Sports Publishing imprint, are proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in sports—books about baseball, pro football, college football, pro and college basketball, hockey, or soccer, we have a book about your sport or your team.

This is the first team history of the New York Mets—or any other team—to be told through a lighthearted analysis of uniform numbers. Ordinary club histories proceed year by year to give the big picture. Mets by the Numbers uses jersey numbers to tell the little stories—the ones the fans love—of the team and its players. This newly revised edition is a catalog of the more than 700 Mets who have played since 1962, but it is far from just a list of No. 18s and 41s. Mets by the Numbers celebrates the team’s greatest players, critiques numbers that have failed to attract talent, and singles out particularly productive numbers, and numbers that had really big nights. With coverage of superstitions, prolific jersey-wearers, the ever-changing Mets uniform, and significant Mets numbers not associated with uniforms, this book is a fascinating alternative history of the Amazin’s. Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Sports Publishing imprint, are proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in sports—books about baseball, pro football, college football, pro and college basketball, hockey, or soccer, we have a book about your sport or your team.
