The Diamond in the Bronx

Yankee Stadium and the Politics of New York

Neil J. Sullivan

Timed to be released at the start of 2008 spring training, Neil Sullivan's The Diamond in the Bronx chronicles the entire history of a stadium that has been home to the greatest dynasty in sports history, a stadium that will see its final Yankees game in 2008. Sullivan follows Yankee Stadium, from its inception in 1923, an era when small children could ride the subway, alone, to the ball game, and when many of the ballplayers themselves lived on the Grand Concourse, through the many championships, right up to the present controversies surrounding the building of a new stadium. For Yankee fans, baseball aficionados, and anyone interested in the increasingly vexed relationship between sports, business, and politics, The Diamond in the Bronx offers a wealth of detail, insight, and historical perspective.
