Since their breakthrough championship season in 1923, when Yankee stadium opened, the New York Yankees have been baseball’s most successful, decorated, and colorful franchise. Home to Ruth, Gehrig, DiMaggio, Berra, Mantle, Jackson, and Mattingly; and later Torre, Jeter, Rivera, and Rodriguez, the team has been a fixture in our national consciousness. Yet it’s been nearly 70 years since Frank Graham wrote the last narrative history of the team. Marty Appel, the Yankees’ PR director during the 1970s, now illuminates the team in all its century-plus of glory: clever, maneuvering owners; rowdy, talented players; and, of course, 27 championships. Appel heard war stories from old-timers like Mantle, Berra, and Casey Stengel, and has remained close to the organization ever since. A collector, writer, and raconteur, he gives life to the team’s history, from the muddy, uneven field at Hilltop Park in the 1900s to the evolution of today’s team as an international brand. Loaded with over a century’s worth of great stories and folklore, this is a treasure trove for lovers of sports, the Yankees, New York history, and America’s game. 1. Language: English.

The New York Mets fan is an Amazin’ creature whose species finds its voice at last in Greg Prince’s Faith and Fear in Flushing, the definitive account of what it means to root for and live through the machinations of an endlessly fascinating if often frustrating baseball team. Prince, coauthor of the highly regarded blog of the same name, examines how the life of the franchise mirrors the life of its fans, particularly his own. Unabashedly and unapologetically, Prince stands up for all Mets fans and, by proxy, sports fans everywhere in exploring how we root, why we take it so seriously, and what it all means. What was it like to enter a baseball world about to be ruled by the Mets in 1969? To understand intrinsically that You Gotta Believe? To overcome the trade of an idol and the dissolution of a roster? To hope hard for a comeback and then receive it in thrilling fashion in 1986? To experience the constant ups and downs the Mets would dispense for the next two decades? To put up with the Yankees right next door? To make the psychic journey from Shea Stadium to Citi Field? To sort the myths from the realities? Greg Prince, as he has done for thousands of loyal Faith and Fear in Flushing listeners daily since 2005, puts it all in perspective as only he can. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bob Souer.

Play Ball: Assessing the Economic Impact of Small Market Baseball teams chronicles the path that one U.S. city (Lansing, MI) took to acquire a minor league baseball franchise (Lansing Lugnuts). This work examines the need for economic growth in the post-industrial City of Lansing, the attempt to draw a minor league baseball team to the city, and overall economic benefit. The municipal cost of hosting Major League baseball teams in large cities like New York and Detroit is also discussed. The study looks at State Equalized Value (SEV) of property taxes in the stadium district, and conducts a longitudinal analysis to measure the increase in property values. The study also includes interviews with business owners in the area surrounding the stadium and asks those owners to what degree the baseball franchise increases their businesses. This is an important read for potential minor league baseball franchisees, city officials looking to grow their economy, and for researchers looking to assess the economic benefit of sports franchises on a regional economy.
