Review

A good choice anywhere baseball books are popular—George Needham -- From Booklist (June 1 & 15, 1994)

An outstanding sports history. -- From Publishers Weekly, June 20, 1994

Bashe's mixing of the Yankees' and its players' stories with that of America's should be a model for others writing in the same genre.—Matthew F. Benedict -- From the South Bend (Indiana) Tribune, August 21, 1994

Dog Days is filled with insider stories that will certainly ingratiate it to baseball fans everywhere. -- From West Coast Review of Books, Arts & Entertainment, August 1994

This is by far the best book I have read about the Yankee teams of the mid 60's to early 70's.
These were the teams I grew up with. At the age of 54 now and growing up in the Northeast Bronx, and also going to high school two blocks from the stadium, the names and events that were in this book was a mind trip back to the good old days.
The Yankee player names that were written about was a mind trip back to the days of my childhood. Bill Burbach, Hal Reniff, Fred Talbot, Celerino Sanchez, Johnny Ellis, Rich Beck to name a few bought a smile and a knowing nod every time these names were mentioned.
Some of the games that were written about were games I had attended with my neighborhood friends.
So if you are a true Yankee fan over the age of 50 this is a must read. Even if your not this is a glance back at what it really means to be a Yankee fan !

Easily the most definitive, well-researched, and entertaining book I've read on the Yankees' late-Mantle to early Steinbrenner, bargain-basement era. An enlightening page-turner for all baseball fans, especially New York baby-boomers. Great anecdotes from players and writers who were there.
Buy this book.

If you were a fan during the Yankee declineasty from 1965-1975 you will love this book. The author did a great job describing the cause and effect of the period. The book features some great interviews from an amazing number of Yankee players from the era. The book really brought the era alive for me!
