    A 10th anniversary celebration of the 1996 Yankee season―the season that sparked a dynasty―teeming with revelations and glorious memories for baseball fans everywhere In the fall of 1995, the New York Yankees suffered a crushing game 5 defeat to the Seattle Mariners―ending their championship dreams. Remarkably, this loss and the end of Buck Showalter's role as manager would lead to one of the most respected team dynasties in sports history. Now veteran New York Post columnist Joel Sherman, who has spent more time with the Bronx Bombers in the past 15 years than any other writer, tells how a down-and-out manager named Joe Torre, working with young, untested players like Derek Jeter and Mariano Rivera, would win the 1996 World Series and a total of 4 championships in 5 years. Along the way, Sherman captures the drama and behind-the-scenes intrigue of a season that started in disarray but would quickly highlight some of the most talented players in Yankees history. Using hundreds of interviews and years of on-the-spot reporting, Sherman re-creates one of the Yankees' greatest years as only he can. Photographs Indexed 352 Pgs. 2006 Hardcover
