In 1998, baseball's fans thrilled to Sammy Sosa and Mark McGwire's home run slugfest and the Yankees won more games in a season than any team in Major League history. Baseball boomed across the US but the biggest bang was in New York where millions celebrated at a victory motorcade along the Avenue of Heroes. It takes courage, and perhaps a little perversity, to decline an invitation to such a party, but Dean Chadwin was otherwise engaged. In a savvy, discursive look at the Yankees' 1998 season Chadwin questions whether the foundation of the team's victory, unmatched television revenues being used to buy the best players, might not spell the end of competition and declining public interest in the national game. Records tumbled, Chadwin contends, less because of unprecedented excellence than as a result of grotesquely unequal competition between the haves and have-nots of the Major League, an imbalance which shows every sign of getting worse. Chadwin's irreverent journey is taken on rarely traveled byways through the Yankee legend: a century of fan misbehavior, the roots of statistical obsessions, the corrupt ties between the game and the media, and fraugh It was the perfect season.

[EAN: 9781859847138], Gebraucht, sehr guter Zustand, [PU: Verso], NEW YORK HISTORY GENERAL HARDCOVER PRINTED BOOKS ILLUSTRATED, Sports & Recreation|Baseball|General, Jacket, First Edition. clean, tight remainder mark() The New York Yankees have won twenty-four championships, more than any other American professional sports franchise. The team's rich history includes a color bar, the towering home runs and bottomless appetites of Babe Ruth, the early and intensely lamented death of Lou Gehrig, frequent labor disputes between players and owners, and the free verse of Yogi Berra and Phil Rizzuto. The 1998 season has emerged as one of the franchise's most memorable both on and off the field. As the squad raced through an all-time record for victories to win the World Series, observers wondered whether the club's stadium would return to its wandering ways of a century ago. The Yankees abandoned Baltimore in 1902. After seventy-five years in the Bronx, Yankee management are now pursuing a move to Manhattan or the suburbs that could tap into millions of public dollars. Those Damn Yankees is a riveting and unconventional foray into the murky underworld of baseball, from the All orders are shipped by Kbooks every business day using USPS Media Mail for American orders and Canada Post for Canada bound orders (from Toronto).

Chadwin, himself a New Yorker, may need to travel the streets of his city more cautiously. While he presents a thorough, well-considered assessment of the history and current status of baseball's most venerable institution, Chadwin can't seem to find much good in the team's past or present; from the fans (chiefly the "Bleacher Creatures"--the cheap-seat-inhabiting zealots described here as homophobic, obnoxious, and insensitive) to the owner (Now that's a new idea: criticizing George Steinbrenner!) to beloved manager Joe Torre and the players themselves, he spares virtually no one in his criticism of the team. Though many of Chadwin's critiques ring true, the same complaints could be made of countless other top athletic teams, in baseball and elsewhere. Still, he does acknowledge that professional sports are a business rather than a microcosm of society (as so many of us, particularly sportswriters, want to believe); Yankees fans, it must be said, are particularly savvy in this regard: "Within the Yankee Nation ... fans embrace a 'Just Win, Baby' belief system because they know that the game contains no unique moral dimension that elevates it above other human endeavors." No matter what, Americans--and, most importantly, New Yorkers--will continue to love them. --Leah Ball americas,baseball,history,sports and outdoors,state and local Baseball, Verso
