Yankee Classics: World Series Magic from the Bronx Bombers, 1921 to Today review

From the ‘Golden Age’ to the most recent World Series victories, Yankee Classics: World Series Magic from the Bronx Bombers, 1921 to Today, relives all 40 World Series appearances by the Yankees. Legendary ace Whitey Ford starts off the book in the foreword, followed by the rich history of the Yankees being explored with simple summaries of each pennant-winning team. Certain players like Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig are given a little more in-depth focus due to their larger-than-life status on the field.

The greatest North American sports franchise, The New York Yankees, has generated some of the most captivating moments in baseball history—nail-biting World Series victories in Game 7 are quite common to Yankee fans.

The photos throughout truly bring the history of the Yankees to life—Ruth doing his famous ‘called shot’ to Wade Boggs’ police horse ride after the ’96 World Series not only brings back fond memories to long-time Yankee fans but is highly educational for 21st century only fans. It is neat to see how photography and Yankee uniforms improved over the years as you start mostly in a black-and-white world. The box scores for every World Series appearance by the Yankees are listed.

The DVD with the book is a must-watch for fans of the early Yankees dynasties. Mr. October Reggie Jackson narrates mainly on the ‘Golden Age’ and some classic Yankees game commentary and interviews. Gehrig’s speech of “the luckiest man on the face of the Earth” is one of the emotional and compelling moments that stood out as Yankees Stadium was packed for the Hall-of-Famer.

While Jackson talks about his success and the recent Yankees championships, the DVD primarily focuses on the Yankees before the ‘70s. The book is definitely a better resource for ‘The New Dynasty,’ which was formed under manager Joe Torre with the help of all-star Derek Jeter.

After reading and watching Yankee Classics, you might be left wondering why more publishers do not release a combo pack like this. The book is a solid summary, and the DVD provides the extra detail that leaves you with a satisfying look back on the great Yankees that made the team more than just a great baseball team but a worldwide phenomenon.
