He makes familiar terrain new again and uncovers original material where no one else thought to look. This is the definitive history of the New York Yankees.

Pinstripe Empire: The New York Yankees from Before the Babe to After the Boss by Marty Appel
Questions about integration, Sunday baseball, the rivalries with the Mets, the Red Sox, the Dodgers and Giants, the slowness to broadcast, the hesitation to embrace promotion, the cozy relationship with the Kansas City A's - it's all answered here. It's emotional, it's funny, it's written for all ages, and it will come to be considered the definitive history of the team for years to come. As a player, you don't always view the things around you as history in the making. Marty Appel always did, and now, he's given us this important book. Finding years of Yankees history embraced in pages of Pinstripe Empire is a delight.
I would like to read it in a single sitting, but I can't sit still for pages even when they're fun. Marty Appel had not written a reference book. There are lots of reference books and the Internet is choke-full of names and numbers. Appel is a former media director of the Yankees and a long-time eyewitness to history. There's no point in being an eyewitness to history if you don't observe history.
For baseball fans this is a great read that takes you on an intimate trip into the Yankee Universe. For Yankee fans this is a gift that only Marty Appel could give us. Appel has become every young fan's father and every older fan's younger brother I have followed the Yankees since , which is even longer than Appel, but I will always be grateful for Pinstripe Empire because I and all baseball fans now have access to the Yankees' players and team Baseball fans, not only Yankees' fans, have a great experience ahead of them.
How often can you say that the photographs in a biography are museum quality and possibly the best you've ever seen in anything this side of an art book?
It is wonderfully readable, backed up by much original research. Marty Appel delivers a riveting and comprehensive history of the Yankees. Marty Appel is a fine storyteller with a keen eye for detail. He has firsthand knowledge of the bold-faced names and the bit players over a large span of Yankee history. All of which makes his perspective both entertaining and enlightening. Marty Appel's passion and insight of the Yankees cannot be equated by anyone Any baseball fan can talk about Ruth, Gehrig, DiMaggio, and Mantle, but few know the story behind the story and all the personnel involved that made these majestic stories come into existence.
No book since Graham's has successfully taken the mantel of "definitive" for this franchise, but it appears we finally have a taker. Appel knows the stories; he handled Mickey Mantle's fan mail as his first gig; became the Yankees' PR director in the s; saw firsthand how The Boss imposed such discipline in as having Yankee Stadium graffiti painted over every morning to "outlast them"; authored many books including The New York Times bestseller "Munson"; and is a New Yorker. He is the person you would want to compile all of this, and he has done so with aplomb in a relatively svelte pages, literally covering it all from before George Herman Ruth to after George Steinbrenner -- even including George Costanza page Here's the best thing about "Pinstripe Empire.
Not only is Marty Appel's book the definitive history of the Yankees -- surely the most famous and, in Appel's handling, one of the most intriguing American sports franchises in history -- but it is a page-turner as well.
