Five weeks ago, I shared some advance praise for Marty Appel’s Pinstripe Empire: The New York Yankees From Before The Babe To After The Boss.
Having now finished the book, I can share some additional feedback on this work.
Pinstripe Empire is amazing. Every time I put it down, I could hardly wait until the next time I picked it up. In fact, it was so good that I plan on reading it again – and then perhaps again for a third time.
Pinstripe Empire covers everything in terms of the Yankees experience from the beginning through the 2011 season. It not only covers the players and what happened each season – it covers what went on with the front office, the Stadium, the broadcast of games, the fans, and what was happening around baseball.
The Yankees are the most storied franchise in baseball history and Pinstripe Empire is the complete telling of their story. This is a must read for every Yankees fan and it will be an enjoyable read for anyone who is a fan of the game – period.
Obviously, I highly recommend reading Pinstripe Empire: The New York Yankees From Before The Babe To After The Boss.
