Gotham Baseball - New York's All-Time Team
Publisher: Arcadia Publishing
“The Big Apple’s greatest squad . . . Selecting either a Brooklyn Dodgers, New York Giants, New York Yankees or New York Mets player for each position.” —Long Island Herald Baseball may be the great American pastime, but in New York, it is a religion. Names like Ruth, Mays, Gehrig, Wright and Robinson live in the hearts and minds of New York fans like apostles. From the street corner to the subway car, debates about which Yankee, Giant, Dodger or Met is better than another have raged on for more than one hundred years. Now, the best of the best are chosen for each position as New York’s all-time greatest team is imagined. Shoo-ins like the Babe and Jackie have their stories told with a fresh perspective. The compelling case for Mike Piazza, not Yogi Berra, as catcher is sure to spark arguments. Sportswriter Mark Healey crafts the Gotham baseball team through captivating tales of the legends of the New York game. “One of the best Baseball Teams books of all time.” —BookAuthority “Many a sportswriter in a column and many a baseball fan in a New York City sports bar have tried to say that their guys were the best; but what if you could put the greatest in Gotham’s rich baseball history—the very, very best—on one team? . . . Mark C. Healey endeavors to do just that—and start a few more arguments along the way.” —Queens Chronicle
