From the 1947 season until the Dodgers and Giants slunk out of town for the Golden State, the epicenter of "the American Game" was New York City. In every year but one, one of the three New York teams played in the World Series, and there were 6 subway series as well.
In an exhibition to be presented at the Museum of the City of New York, the story of The Glory Years of New York baseball will be told in pictures, objects and words.
This book is the companion to that exhibition. In it, along with the best memorabilia, are outstanding new essays, arranged by "innings," from the best baseball writers:
1st inning: Breaking Baseball's Color Barrier in Brooklyn
Jules Tygiel: More than Jackie, More than the Dodgers
2nd inning: Media
George Vecsey: My America
3rd inning: Giants/Dodgers Rivalry
Lee Lowenfish: Two Cheers for Horace Stoneham: The Giants' Role in Baseball's Integration
4th inning: Fans
Michael Shapiro: Baseball Talk: What Was Lost
