From the Back Cover

"If you consider yourself a tested veteran at baseball trivia in general or a hardcore expert at Yankees trivia in particular, it doesn't matter. You owe it to yourself to test your skills with this book. If you pass this test you can truly claim to be a cut above everyone else." - Daniel J. Brush, award-winning co-author of New York Yankees: An Interactive Guide to the World of Sports

More About the Author

Tucker Elliot is a former high school athletic director, varsity baseball coach, and college professor. He is now a fulltime writer residing in Tampa, FL.

Tucker's ebook The Day Before 9/11 was released in March 2013. A harrowing true story that spans America's first decade in the war on terror, The Day Before 9/11 portrays in riveting detail the sacrifices made by military families serving overseas and the enduring pain that accompanies the tragic loss of life.

Tucker has written two ebooks related to The Day Before 9/11 that will be released by Black Mesa Publishing in November 2014: The Memory of Hope and The Rainy Season.

In April 2012, Tucker's second book on his home town Braves was released. Dale Murphy, one of Tucker's boyhood heroes, wrote the foreword to Atlanta Braves: An Interactive Guide to the World of Sports.

In total he has authored or contributed to more than 40 sports related books, including New York Yankees IQ, Major League Baseball IQ, Cincinnati Reds IQ, and Tampa Bay Rays IQ (with MLB pitcher Andy Sonnanstine).

In addition to his books, Tucker is a cowriter for the screenplays "Shedding Baggage" and "The Home Stretch."

His current project is working with former professional baseball player Tony Stevens on his memoir. Stevens gave up a baseball career to join the Marines after 9/11.

Format: Paperback
Thank you Tucker Elliot! He has provided this Yankee fan with the ultimate book in baseball trivia. Finally, I can test my skills and see how I measure up in this trivia test of 250 multiple choice and fill in the blank questions in varying degrees of difficulty. Ten categories ranging from the numbers game to legends to fabulous feats awaits the daring New York fan. How did I do? Let's just say I lost a tough seven-game series

New York Yankees IQ: The Ultimate Test of True Fandom is another in the fine tradition of Atlanta Braves IQ: The Ultimate Test of True Fandom (Volume 1) and Mixed Martial Arts IQ: The Ultimate Test of True Fandom (Volume 1) . The book is well edited, the perfect size and easy to read. It really makes for a great gift to anyone who thinks they are a veteran at baseball trivia in general. It goes without saying that to any Yankee fan this is a must have!

Now if Black Mesa will just do one on the New York Mets next........

Format: Paperback
I'm as relieved as everyone else who loves the Yankees that our postseason "drought" lasted only one season - and what's more, the championship drought that had been dogging us since we let the 2001 World Series get away is mercifully, thankfully, and finally over. Girardi has his first ring as skipper, A-Rod and Tex have their first rings period, and Jeter, Rivera, and Posada, God Bless Them, have their fifth rings as members of the Yankees.

And having said all that, the first thing I did was look for ways to continue celebrating the Yankees championship long into the offseason - and I'm happy to say that New York Yankees IQ: The Ultimate Test of True Fandom is most definitely up to the task. It's a fun, challenging, exciting, and captivating read, because it doesn't just give you a list of trivia questions, it actually tells you the story of the Yankees and then challenges you with questions about those stories. It's great entertainment about the greatest baseball team in the world - hard to beat that.

Format: Paperback
The New York Yankees are baseball's most storied franchise, with a rich history of individual and team accomplishments; from Babe Ruth to Joe DiMaggio to Mickey Mantle to Derek Jeter, this team has now compiled an astonishing 27 World Series championships. It's no wonder I found this trivia book, written by Tucker Elliot, to be so fascinating. If you're a Yankees fan, or even a Yankees hater who just loves baseball history, this book will test your knowledge, with a wide variety of trivia written in a most engaging style.

With the regular season fast approaching, it's time to get into the spirit of things by brushing up on your Yankees trivia. You won't be disappointed.
