This compilation of Yankees tales would belong in the Baseball Stories Hall of Fame if Cooperstown could boast such a headquarters. Narrator Tony Craine becomes each player in turn as these dozens of individualized stories take off from home plate. The audiobook is organized via an alphabetized list of Yankees personalities spinning their yarns. Mickey Mantle, Babe Ruth, and George Steinbrenner all get audio real estate here, each with their own clear heading so listeners can easily skip around. True fans - and they are legion in this league - may already be familiar with some of these funny, dramatic, and inspiring stories, but nothing compares to hearing them come alive in Craine’s youthful performance, as if the tales are being recounted in the dugout.
A treasury of thrilling memories for fans of baseball's most storied franchise. When it comes to baseball glory, no other team comes close to the New York Yankees, winners of forty American League pennants and 27 World Series championships. Amazing Tales from the Yankee Dugout is a compilation of the funniest, strangest, and most unique stories, anecdotes, and tall tales that have been attributed to baseball’s legendary New York Yankees through the years. Fans will gain new insights about the famed Bronx Bombers that they’ve never heard before.
