Summary The 1927 New York Yankees are often considered one of the best Yankee teams of all time--perhaps one of the best major league teams ever. Yet often overlooked is the Yankee team that followed. The 1928 Yankees started the season on track to meet and even surpass the records and accomplishments of the season before. Many players from the 1927 "Murderers' Row" were still there, including Bob Meusel, Earle Combs, Mark Koenig, Tony Lazzeri, Lou Gehrig, and Babe Ruth. The 1928 New York Yankees: The Return of Murderers' Row tells the story of this underrated squad that endured a rollercoaster season of ups and downs to ultimately win the World Series. Highlighted by numerous images of the key players for the Yankees, this detailed and thoroughly researched book provides an intimate look into a season to remember. Includes a discussion of the best teams in baseball leading up to the 1928 season, along with historical background on the country's condition in the 1920s. From the Yankees' preseason trip to Florida through their dominance, collapse, and subsequent rise, this book will entertain and educate all fans and historians of the national pastime.
