The Bronx's Baseball Cathedral

Yankee Stadium gets the lush, photo-book treatment from longtime baseball scribe Harvey Frommer.

Max Lakin

On his first day in the Bronx in 1923, Babe Ruth crushed a slow hanger out of the yard, something the New York Times would later call "the real baptism of Yankee Stadium." Eighty-five years later, the iconoclastic grounds have born witness to a countless number of baseball's most-revered names and most-inimitable moments.

A great book by a great author, thanks for the incisive questions Max. As a photographer, the images in the book are outstanding starting from the hand colored shot of the old Yankee Stadium. Along with a a Frommer favorite moment of Reggie Jackson's 3 homers in the 1977 World Series, mine was the 1978 Boston Massacre when the Yanks swept Boston in Fenway 4 games to none. Keep on writing, Harvey!
