Whether you love the Yankees or loathe them, even the most casual baseball fan is well versed on the team's nearly 100-year lineage of legends that span the decades from Ruth to DiMaggio to Mantle to Jeter. Most every book on the Yankees, therefore, heralds the unparalleled winning tradition of the famed Bronx Bombers. This is not that kind of book. In Bronx Bummers: The Unofficial History of the New York Yankees' Bad Boys, Blunders and Brawls, authors Robert Dominguez and David Hinckley shine a light on the dark side of the team's otherwise illustrious history. In 50 lighthearted chapters, Bronx Bummers begins with the tale of the Yankees' first colorful owners in 1903 - one was a former New York police chief widely considered the most corrupt cop in city history, the other was Manhattan's biggest owner of illegal gambling dens - and continues through the sordid exploits of some of the team's earliest stars, including a slick-fielding first baseman run out of baseball for throwing games; a good-hitting pitcher who derailed his Hall of Fame-bound career with his brawling and boozing ways; and even the great Babe Ruth himself, who regularly led the league in HRs, RBIs and STDs. And while most baseball teams have a history of bench-clearing brawls, Dominguez and Hinckley, veteran New York City tabloid reporters, chronicle how the Yankees hold the unofficial record for most fights between teammates - not to mention the most front-office blunders. From the bad old days of the team's origins as the Highlanders all the way to the Bronx Zoo years and beyond, Bronx Bummers divulges what really went on behind the boxscores of baseball's winningest franchise.

Baseball’s No-hit Wonders honors legendary pitchers Cy Young, Bob Feller, Nolan Ryan, and Sandy Koufax while introducing readers to the eccentrics and one-shot wonders. The book, the first of its kind in fifteen years, fleshes out the colorful characters, compelling narratives, and statistical oddities from baseball’s 290 no-hit efforts--as well as the many near-misses that are also part of the national pastime’s storied history. There is detail and great research, but also a fun, breezy take on the game, from the no-hitter thrown by a pitcher on acid, the worst hitters most known for breaking up no-hitters, and guys with nicknames such as Bo, Bumpus, Bobo, Cannonball, and Nixey. Even the game’s greatest slugger is credited with a partial no-hitter, and all he did was throw a punch. Chapters on the best no-hitters of all time are interspersed with Did You Know? lists of no-hitters by days of the week, by team, by city, and more, as well as lists of the best no-hitters of the Negro Leagues, catchers who caught the most no-hitters, and the best pitchers NOT to throw a no-hitter.

A thoroughly revised and updated edition of Thomas C. Foster's classic guide—a lively and entertaining introduction to literature and literary basics, including symbols, themes, and contexts—that shows you how to make your everyday reading experience more rewarding and enjoyable. While many books can be enjoyed for their basic stories, there are often deeper literary meanings interwoven in these texts. How to Read Literature Like a Professor helps us to discover those hidden truths by looking at literature with the eyes—and the literary codes—of the ultimate professional reader: the college professor. What does it mean when a literary hero travels along a dusty road? When he hands a drink to his companion? When he's drenched in a sudden rain shower? Ranging from major themes to literary models, narrative devices, and form, Thomas C. Foster provides us with a broad overview of literature—a world where a road leads to a quest, a shared meal may signify a communion, and rain, whether cleansing or destructive, is never just a shower—and shows us how to make our reading experience more enriching, satisfying, and fun. This revised edition includes new chapters, a new preface, and a new epilogue, and incorporates updated teaching points that Foster has developed over the past decade.

Is there a sports team more synonymous with winning than the New York Yankees? The team of Ruth, Gehrig, DiMaggio, Berra, Ford, Mantle, Jackson, Mattingly? Of Torre, Jeter, and Rivera? Of forty American League pennants, twenty-seven World Championships, and nearly forty Hall of Famers? Like so many great American institutions, the Yankees began humbly, on the muddy, uneven grass of Hilltop Park. Eighteen years later the little second-class franchise won its first pennant. Today, the Yankees are worth more than a billion dollars. It's been nearly seventy years since Frank Graham wrote the last narrative history of the Yankees. Marty Appel, the Yankees' PR director during the 1970s, now illuminates the team in its hundred-plus years of glory: clever, maneuvering owners; rowdy, talented players; great stories behind the great stories. Appel heard tales from old-timers like Waite Hoyt, Bill Dickey, Yogi Berra, Phil Rizzuto, and Whitey Ford, and has remained close to the organization ever since. He gives life to the team's history, from the demise of Hilltop Park in the 1900s to the evolution of today's team as an international brand. With a wealth of photographs, this is a treasure trove for lovers of sports, the Yankees, New York history, and America's game.
