The Men Who Made the Yankees, by W. Nikola-Lisa, earns the Literary Classics Seal of Approval
The Men Who Made the Yankees, by W. Nikola-Lisa, explores the birth of professional baseball as we now know it, from inception to the awkward growing pains of its proverbial adolescence. Once an unruly sport, with players and officials known for excessive cheating, profanity and brawling, a tenacious group of men worked to revive a league that was hovering dangerously near the brink of extinction. Nikola-Lisa, a life-long baseball enthusiast, introduces readers to fascinating trivia and little-known facts about a sport that has become an American tradition.
Baseball fans are sure to enjoy this book which provides a historical view of baseball along with a more in-depth look into the founders of the Yankees, some of their key players and the contributions they made to professional baseball.
