Format: Hardcover
Lasting Yankee Stadium Memories: Unforgettable Tales From the House that Ruth Built comes from a writer who has compiled over forty hilarious and moving essays by writers and commentators about the experiences that have made Yankee Stadium famous. Columnists, sports writers, biographers, and more provide literary insights into Yankee Stadium experiences that provide a 'you are there' feel. Accompanied by a foreword by Yogi Berra, this is simply outstanding!

Format: Hardcover
Good book, good effort, but lacking in some respects...

--Memories, mostly good and all interesting, from many individuals with no name recognition...some of that is good, even necessary, for this to be a fan-friendly book, but more generally recognizable contributors would have helped, more players, officals, that kind of thing...

---Many of the contributors were media types, and it was interesting to read their work...some, if not most, wrote to impress their fellow scribes...this is a book about memories, good and bad, not one's writing ability. These "written-to-impress-my-friends" media pieces lacked the genuiness, sincerity and any of the real warmth and emotion stories and recollections such as these should have...

All in all, a good tribute to an aging, and now gone, sports relic of our times. All change is not progress, but sometimes change is necessary, and unfortunately, this was one of those times.

It is nice, even great and appropriate, that the old Yankee Stadium field, where Ruth, Gehrig, Dimaggio, Mantle and all those great Yankees played is still there, green as ever...Though the stadium is gone, it remains hallowed ground.

As it is and should be...

A very good idea for book, I myself have my own memories of the pre renovation stadium as well as the post, and hopefully soon get to have memories of the new one. Any Yankee fan should like this book, I give it 4 out of 5...

This collection of Yankees Stadium memories is a wonderful read.
I grew up attending games and appreciate the stories of others who made the Stadium their baseball home.
