Well it was the book that took 86 years in the making but Harvey Frommer's Remembering Yankee Stadium: An Oral and Narrative History of "The House That Ruth Built" has finally hit the shelves. While most of the Yankee Stadium tributes hit shelves in the spring, it was only fitting that RYS waited until now to become a Fall Classic. Yes Bomber Buddies it was well worth the wait. My initial reaction was that the official release had better photos than this fantastic release but after closer review RYS beats any Yankee Book out there hands down. You go deeper than the aerial view of a packed stadium or the cars lined up in the once vacant Bronx on Opening Day 1923. Every picture in this book triggers off a string of memories. You get up close and dirty with everything from Derek Jeter diving head first into the stands to the ground breaking at the new stadium himself. The 9-11 photos can make you tear up all over again. Mickey Mantle, his swing never looked so sweet.

Who better to write and compile a tribute to an icon such as Yankee Stadium than renowned baseball/Yankee author Harvey Frommer? Frommer makes great use of every Yankee and baseball player he either wrote about or met over his illustrious career. Who else can have a forward written by the Voice of Yankee Stadium, Bob Sheppard? If I have to explain who he is you are reading the wrong book, but Harvey explains who he is as well as his son Paul (Sheppard).
The body of the book like any good Yankee History book is the life of Yankee Stadium from 1923 through today. What makes RYS different is that the glue holding or bridging these stories together is made up of what Harvey Frommer refers to as the voices. The voices are players, celebrities, broadcasters, writers or fans just like you and me.

Format: Hardcover
The beauty of this book is the fact that the author Harvey Frommer, and publisher Stewart, Tabori and Chang have captured amazing fan memories and pictures and added them to this coffee table release.

The photography in this book is unparalleled and I have never seen so many amazing shots of the world's most famous baseball stadium. When you read the back cover there are endorsements from George F. Will, Regis Philbin and Nolan Ryan to name a few. As a matter of full disclosure I have a few stories in this book as well. I love the shot of Roger Maris that takes up two pages and the shot of Bob Sheppard, the legendary PA announcer who to be honest doesn't have a lot of pictures out there. He wrote the foreword in this soon to be classic.

I almost fell over when I saw myself listed in the glossary and because I am a "CO" my listing came before the great Jerry Coleman.

When you hit the first chapter and see the original shots of this baseball palace it's amazing to me that the author has quotes from Yankee skipper Miller Huggins about his player Babe Ruth!

Fans will learn that the Yankees actually started out in the Polo Grounds until their stadium was built. I love the pictures of fans sitting there in hats, suits and coats. I always wonder when was active wear created? What about blue jeans?

There are some stunning team pictures in this book and the one of the 20-something Yanks is worth $400,000!

This book leaves no stone unturned as it goes through the decades of this storied franchise in amazing detail. Fans who consider themselves Yankee experts can learn from this book.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I remember the first time I walked into Yankee Stadium in 1960. It was larger than life, captivating and thrilling. The facade, the field, the sounds, the smells. Later I became a Mets fan, and experienced the same sensation upon entering Shea Stadium. To this very day,I have never lost that feeling of expectation when entering a ballpark. The little boy in me has never left. Over the past two weeks, New York City has lost both of these Baseball landmarks. The final games have been played, and they will fade into history. That's why Harvey Frommer's "Remembering Yankee Stadium" is a welcome addition to my Baseball library. It captures the essence and magic of Yankee Stadium. The winning combination of outstanding photographs and engaging annecdotes allow the reader to experience once again the excitement that permeated Yankee Stadium. Great books engage, entertain, and teach. They're like a friend that's always there for you. This is a great book.

This compelling book captures the history and spirit of New York City, Yankee Stadium, and baseball through a decade by decade history of the team and its unforgettable home - the "house that Ruth built." From the moving opening words of Thomas Wolfe, to the memorable stories of New Yorkers set against evocative historical photographs, Harvey Frommer has created a beautifully written exquisite book that will captivate not just Yankee but all baseball and - New York City - fans.

This is a treasure not to be missed.

Format: Hardcover
This is the best of the books serving as a retrospective of Yankee Stadium, much better, in fact, than the "Official Retrospective." The interviews, photos, and layout are superior. The visual representation of ticket stubs and Stadium programs is a welcome bonus. The interviews and anectodes are pithy and insightful. As a Stadium authority (present at the Chambliss, Reggie 3-home run, and Boone games among others) I can tell you this should be the choice of those books saying a last good-bye.
