The New York Yankees announced today that in a partnership with Pocket Books, they have published, Yankee Stadium: The Official Retrospective.
Yankee Stadium: The Official Retrospective, which was authored by Mark Vancil and Alfred Santasiere III, is the only book about Yankee Stadium that is licensed by the New York Yankees. It features an introduction by George M. Steinbrenner III, a foreword by Rudy Giuliani, and more than 150 photographs, many never before published.
The keepsake also features more than 80 first-person accounts including those by former Presidents Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush, as well as Paul McCartney, Muhammad Ali, Jim Brown, Mario Cuomo, Derek Jeter, Alex Rodriguez, Mariano Rivera and Yogi Berra.
"As we move the tradition of the Yankees across the street to the new Yankee Stadium, we are extremely proud to present a one-of-a-kind book on The House That Ruth Built," said Yankees Chief Operating Officer Lonn Trost. "This unique momento will give fans a glimpse into the history of the Stadium that they can't get anywhere else. It is a must-read for all sports enthusiasts."
The book is currently available at Yankee Stadium, Legends Field, via phone at (800) GO-YANKS and online at www.yankees.com. It retails for $50 and will be available at all major bookstores on March 25. Pocket Books is a division of Simon & Schuster, Inc.
