Five O'Clock Lightning: Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, and the Greatest Team in Baseball, the 1927 New York Yankees

by

Advance Praise for Five O'Clock Lightning "Come along with Harvey Frommer on a jaunty stroll through baseball eighty years ago. The 1927 Yankees may or may not have been the best team ever, but surely this is the best book about that wonderful concentration of talent." --George F. Will "Harvey Frommer brings the perceptive eye of a historian to what was arguably the most feared batting order of all time. Add to that his contagious enthusiasm for classic baseball and you have a most enjoyable book." --Roger Kahn "An engrossing and entertaining look at a mythical baseball team. Ride the trains, chew the tobacco, and have fun." --Leigh Montville, author of The Big Bam: The Life and Times of Babe Ruth "How great were the '27 Yankees? So great that even now, eighty years later, they still have the power to astonish and entertain. Reading Five O'Clock Lightning, I felt almost as if I were on the road with the Babe, Lou, and Miller Huggins. Harvey Frommer has a great eye for detail and a wonderful ability to bring his characters to life. The book is a delight." --Jonathan Eig, author of Luckiest Man: The Life and Death of Lou Gehrig and Opening Day: The Story of Jackie Robinson's First Season "Harvey Frommer hits a home run in this sweet look back at a time when baseball was the only game and the Yankees seemed to be the only team." --Dan Shaughnessy, author of Senior Year "Baseball's greatest team as recounted by baseball's greatest author, Harvey Frommer. A surefire classic!" --Seth Swirsky, author of Baseball Letters and Something to Write Home About Hide synopsis
