WHAT THEY HAVE SAID ABOUT THE BOOK

REMEMBERING YANKEE STADIUM (Fall 2008)

"I feel very fortunate that I experienced the mystique of playing in Yankee Stadium. There is no other stadium that had that aura. And Harvey Frommer captures it all in this terrific book." 

- Nolan Ryan

"In this biography of a building in the Bronx, Harvey Frommer, an accomplished writer about many facets of baseball, illuminates the truth of Winston Churchill's famous aphorism that "we shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us." This history of Yankee Stadium is a fine contribution to the history of the national pastime."

- GEORGE F. WILL

When you're a kid growing up in the Bronx in the 40's, a visit to Yankee Stadium is something you never forget. It was a thrill then and now all these years later, it means even more to me. In this terrific book, Harvey Frommer brings it all back again." 

- REGIS PHILBIN

- BOB SHEPPARD

"You're going to keep this book around the house for a long time. You're going to devour it. You're going to keep going back to it five years, 10, 20, 30 years in the future as you sit with kids and grandkids and tell them about the people who ran across a stretch of green grass in the Bronx."

- LEIGH MONTVILLE, "The Big Bam"

#   #   #

"Another instant classic from Baseball's greatest author, Harvey Frommer"

- SETH SWIRSKY, "Baseball Letters"

#   #   #

"As a Red Sox fan living behind enemy lines, this one's kind of hard to take: a lively, colorful, altogether winning illustrated biography of the House Our Former Pitcher Built. The pictures take you through the portals, and the  voices of fans and players bring the place alive. The Stadium is preserved  for eternity in Harvey Frommer's wonderful book."

- ROBERT SULLIVAN, "Our Red Sox: A Story of Family, Friends &  Fenway"

#   #   #

 "This book is big and beautiful and filled with glorious memories, just like the ball park it memorializes. Harvey  Frommer has the eye of a historian and the heart of a fan.

Fans will treasure this gem for many, many years.

- JONATHAN EIG, "Luckiest Man: The Life and Death of Lou Gehrig"

The Yankees baseball team uniforms were quite different than how they are today.
