New Book Celebrates the Best and the Worst of "Yankee Pride"


The story of the rise and fall of the New York Yankees in the 1960s – and the team’s ultimate return to respectability within that decade – is chronicled in a new book entitled Yankee Pride: The Story of the New York Yankees in the 1960s … Baseball’s Real Golden Age. Published by Bright Stone Press, Yankee Pride is available at 1960sBaseball.com and through Amazon.com and other retail outlets in softcover, Kindle and e-Book (pdf) editions.

Lewis Center, OH, June 24, 2012 --(PR.com)-- Yankee Pride follows the story of the New York Yankees during the 1960s, season-by-season and month-by-month. Each month includes game-by-game summaries, highlighting performances by Yankee players and the American League stars they faced. It also profiles individual Yankees players from the 1960s, including Mickey Mantle, Roger Maris, Whitey Ford, Elston Howard, Mel Stottlemyre, Roy White and others.

The author, Carroll Conklin, contends that the 1960s produced the best overall play of any decade in baseball history. Conklin has been advancing the idea of the 1960s as baseball’s “real golden age” for more than three years through his 1960s Baseball web site (www.1960sbaseball.com) and affiliated blogs (1960sBaseball Blog and Squidoo/1960sBaseball). On a daily basis, he tweets facts about 1960s baseball (“Today in 1960s Baseball …”) to followers of twitter.com/Baseball1960s.

Yankee Pride focuses on the Yankee teams of the 1960s. According to Conklin, the book is written in a style that allows both casual and die-hard baseball fans to relive the drama of each season and “virtually watch each season progress at lightning speed.”

“The book is written for baseball and Yankee fans who are accustomed to enjoying their sports reporting in a series of rapid-fire micro bites,” Conklin explains. “In its style, Yankee Pride is a combination of ESPN Sports Center and Twitter applied to New York Yankees history.

“It’s what you would read and hear about the 1960s Yankee teams and players if there had been an ESPN and a Twitter during the 1960s,” Conklin adds.
