Babe Ruth : launching the legend by Jim Reisler( Book )

3 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 627 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Americans wanted desperately to move on, drink gin, dance the Charleston, and enjoy a good game of baseball, the Babe gave it to them. Big time. Not only did he hit a record-breaking 54 home runs that season, he unleashed a new way to play the game, helped launch the Yankee dynasty, and saved baseball in the midst of the devastating Black Sox scandal. History was in the making." "Told in luminous prose by baseball writer Jim Reisler, Babe Ruth: Launching the Legend is a rare glimpse into the story that started it all, a year when Ruth was simply a ballplayer, an emerging star on the very verge of becoming a mythic hero."--Jacket

Before they were the Bombers : the New York Yankees' early years, 1903-1915 by Jim Reisler( Book )

5 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Many histories of the New York Yankees only skim the years before Ruth, Gehrig, DiMaggio, Mantle, and Ford. But what about the Yankees before these big names - before greatness?" "The early Yankees, who spent their first 12 years as the Highlanders and were occasionally known as the Americans and the Invaders, get the attention they deserve here. This history follows the team up until its sale in 1915, beginning with 1903 when the team was formed from the remnants of the Baltimore Orioles. They were the most expensive major league team ever assembled - but they are remembered primarily for their terrible failures, which included club-record 103 losses in 1908. Yes, the Yankees."--Cover
