In the heady days after World War II, the nation was ready for excitement and heroes, and a city—New York—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.

New York City Baseball recaptures the extraordinary decade of 1947–1957, when the three New York teams were the uncrowned kings of the city. In those ten years, Casey Stengel’s 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; Bobby Thomson hit “the shot heard ’round the world”; and the Brooklyn Dodgers achieved the impossible by beating the Yankees in the 1955 World Series. Over the decade, the teams averaged an astounding 90 wins against 63 losses a season, making it, according to The New York Times, “a helluva ten years.”

Including a new introduction to the 2013 edition and rare interviews with Monte Irvin, Rachel Robinson (Jackie's widow), Mel Allen, Duke Snider, Eddie Lopat, Phil Rizzuto, and many more, this book is a must-have for those who want to experience baseball’s golden age.

HASH(0x9b38dbc4) von 5 Sternen Okay book for a great era of New York baseball 7. November 2015
Von LSmith - Veröffentlicht auf
For baseball fans in New York, the 10-year period from 1947 to 1957 were great times – all three of the teams that called the city home – the Giants, Dodgers and Yankees – had some of their best seasons and their best players. Harvey Frommer takes the reader back to that decade in this book that tells of the teams and their records from that time.

The book also talks about the mood of the fans when the Giants and Dodgers left for San Francisco and Los Angeles respectively in 1958. Even though this was not supposed to be the main topic of the book or the chapter that was supposed to set the mood for the reader, this was the best chapter in doing what I believed the author set out to do and that was to describe the teams, the players and the city and their emotions toward their baseball teams. I felt all of these were captured quite well when describing the politics involved in trying to replace Ebbets Field and the ultimate rejection of that proposal and subsequent departure of the Dodgers.

It was also the section of the book in which I learned the newest information, as I was not familiar with that conflict. I picked up this book in order to try to learn some new information about the three teams and while there was some, the book seemed like one long novel with an unhappy ending for 2/3 of the city since the Yankees were left as the only New York City baseball team in 1958.

The writing about the baseball achievements of all three teams is good. The storytelling is good, especially for a reader who may not be familiar with the New York teams of that era. Baseball historians or those who have previous knowledge of this era will want to pass on this book, as there isn’t a lot of deep research or new material that someone who has a deep interest in this era wouldn’t already know.

Overall, this is a decent read to pass a couple hours away to take a trip back to a simpler time in the city when there was always a winning team, or two, or three to cheer on. But if a reader wants to do research on these teams in this era, it is best to skip this one.

This is one of the most error filled kindle books that I have purchased so far. There are numerous typographical errors through out the book, and this spoils an otherwise enjoyable book.
