Summary

A comprehensive look behind the rise of a new generation of superstar Yankees—now updated with the Yankees’ 100-win 2018 season!Derek Jeter and the “Core Four” have passed the torch to a new generation of Yankees superstars—including Aaron Judge, Gary Sanchez, Luis Severino, and Gleyber Torres—who have powered through the minors to become stars on baseball’s biggest stage. Joined by reigning National League MVP Giancarlo Stanton, this thrilling group is poised to chase championship titles for years to come.The Baby Bombers details the inside-baseball strategy of the Yankees’ pivot to a younger, more exciting roster, the players’ fascinating paths to Yankee Stadium, their memorable 2017 and 2018 playoff runs, their amazing assaults on the record books, and a unified mission to hoist the franchise’s twenty-eighth World Series trophy. Through new, in-depth interviews, veteran reporter Bryan Hoch fleshes out the transition from Jeter to Judge, scoring behind-the-scenes insights from general manager Brian Cashman, former manager Joe Girardi, executives and scouts, members of the current roster, opponents, and Yankees legends of the past. Winning baseball in the Bronx has resumed with postseason hero Aaron Boone in the manager’s chair, aiming to steer the franchise to its forty-first World Series appearance. Featuring nearly fifty photographs, The Baby Bombers tracks the rise of today’s Yankees from fresh-faced rookies into a group that is destined for pinstriped greatness.“A must-read for anyone who wants to understand who these new Yankees are, and where they are going.”―Ken Rosenthal, baseball writer and columnist for The Athletic, and Emmy Award–winning field reporter for MLB Network and FOX Sports

    Mike Peyton drew his first cartoon in 1942. At the time he was interned in a German prisoner of war camp, and the cartoon appeared in a newspaper run by and for his fellow prisoners. Seventy years later, Mike has had to put the cap back on his pen permanently as failing eyesight has prevented him from drawing any more cartoons for the Yachting Monthly Confessional column for which he has become so well loved in recent years. 
     
    Having provided illustrations for magazines as varied as the Church of England Times and Corsetry & Underwear, Mike became best known for cartoons relating to his first love - yachting (and as he will happily point out, he had a boat before he had a car). To celebrate his career, Adlard Coles Nautical presents this hilarious retrospective of the very best of Mike's cartoons from the last eight decades, a collection that will bring a smile to the face of even the most rain-sodden sailor stuck in his marina berth for another week supposedly in summer. 
     
    When yachting journalist Dick Durham wrote Mike's biography, he called Mike 'the world's greatest yachting cartoonist' and this book shows why. Witty, wise and well-executed, Mike's lively, perceptive and highly distinctive cartoons will speak to anyone who has ever taken to the water.

    At 5-19, the odds against Gene Chizik leading Auburn to a national championship were staggering. But the odds were about to change. All In chronicles the remarkable journey of Gene Chizik, who in two short years went from being the much-maligned 5-19 coach of the Iowa State Cyclones to the undefeated AP SEC Coach of the Year of the 2010 national champion Auburn Tigers. Coach Chizik shares never-before-told stories about his controversial head coaching career-from his highly contentious departure from Iowa State and his heavily criticized appointment at Auburn to his historic 2010 championship run and all the unexpected twists, turns, tragedies, and triumphs along the way. As he recounts his journey, he opens up about the pivotal role his faith has played in his life and career, and he shares his time-tested secrets to success, both on and off the field.

    Cincinnati Reds pitcher Frank Pastore stepped onto the mound in Dodger Stadium to throw another fastball-something he'd done thousands of times since childhood. But this time was different. The batter connected and the ball came rocketing back to the mound, shattering not only Frank's pitching elbow-but also his dream of getting "rich and famous" through Major League Baseball.™ As he walked to the training room, Frank found himself asking a God he didn't believe in, "Why is this happening to me?" There was no answer-at least not then. It was this injury that sent Frank, a lifelong atheist, on a journey that would change not only his mind but also his whole life-as a husband, father, friend, and troubled son. We all know the pain of shattered dreams. We've all wondered how to pick up the broken pieces after a crisis. We've all wondered, "Where is God?" when life hurts so bad. This is a story of how the fragments of broken dreams can be reassembled into even bigger and better things. A story of how, when life's disasters and difficulties knock us down, they don't have to destroy us. This is a story that shows how all of us can come to know we're in God's good hands. Even when we're shattered.
