Summary Å PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ↠ Marty Appel review Pinstripe Empire ç PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Since their breakthrough championship season in 1923 when Yankee stadium opened the New York Yankees have been baseball's most successful decorated and colorful franchise Home to Ruth Gehrig DiMaggio Berra Mantle Jackson and Mattingly; and later Torre Jeter Rivera and Rodriguez the team has been a fixture in our national consciousnessYet it's been nearly seventy years sinc. Even though I m not a fan of the Yankees I was really looking forward to reading this history of one of the most storied franchises in all of sports Especially since it was written by a man that had worked for the Yankees and was familiar with the people and places that helped make the team what it is today And yetthat inside perspective presents a drawback in telling a complete story While Marty clearly knows his stuff it often feels at time like he s treading lightly about events such as how former players were treated or about Steinbrenner because he still considers the Yankess his family Even worse his writing style leaves something to be desired as at times he overwhelms and confuses the reader For example he ll begin talking about events about 1903 and get distracted by the fact that Derek Jeter was born close by some 70 years later and mention that for a paragraph before jumping back to 1903 And he does this over and over again devoting paragraphs to events out of timeline that instead of creating a compelling story only overwhelm it And when he does present material in a chronological manner it feels staid and boring Like we re reading an encyclopedia instead of a compelling story of such a storied franchise In short even though Marty knows his stuff his writing style creates a boring bland and sometimes overwhelming story I was really hoping that it would have been like the recent biography of Bill Veeck than reading an encyclopedia If you re a die hard Yankees fan then this book might appeal to youotherwise you d be better off looking elsewhere
