New York City baseball : the last golden age, 1947-1957

by

What a time! In the heady days after World War II, a nation was ready for heroes and a great city was eager for entertainment. Baseball provided the heroes, and the Yankees, the Giants, and the Dodgers--with their rivalries, their successes, their stars--provided the show. In those ten years, Casey Stengel and his Bronx Bombers went to the World Series seven times; Joltin' Joe DiMaggio stepped gracefully aside to make room for a young slugger named Mickey Mantle; and the Brooklyn (but not for much longer) Dodgers achieved the impossible by beating the Yankees in the1955 World Series. Includes rare interviews with Monte Irvin, Rachel Robinson (Jackie's widow), Mel Allen, Duke Snider, Eddie Lopat, Phil Rizzuto, Jerry Coleman, and New York media figures. Hide synopsis
