<style type="text/css"><!--td {border: 1px solid #ccc;}br {mso-data-placement:same-cell;}--></style><strong>Baseball fans in the Bronx and beyond will delight in this incomparable, far-reaching collection of insider tales.</strong><br /><br />When 19-year-old Marty Appel got a job as a mail clerk for the New York Yankees, assigned to spend the summer of &#39;68 answering Mickey Mantle’s fan letters, he couldn&#39;t have known it was just the start of over a half-century entwined with the Bronx Bombers.<br /><br />As a PR director, television producer, writer, and historian, Appel never missed an opportunity to get to know the main characters—and supporting cast—of Yankees lore. The result is an unparalleled trove of colorful stories featuring a seemingly unending parade of characters including Mantle, Joe DiMaggio, Yogi Berra, Thurman Munson, Derek Jeter, George Steinbrenner, and everyone in between.<br /><br />By turns hilarious and heartrending, <em>Pinstripes by the Tale</em> is an intimate look at an iconic franchise through the lens of its foremost historical authority. Told as a series of captivating vignettes, it invites readers to consider the small moments that quietly shape the contours of baseball history.

<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 10pt">Rare is the athlete who captures the imagination of a generation. In Joe DiMaggio and Mickey Mantle, sports culture had two such figures. Undoubtedly, DiMaggio and Mantle are two of the most revered names in baseball literature. However, there is one particular moment that has been overlooked by baseball historians and writers: the 1951 pennant-winning New York Yankees team—DiMaggio’s last year and Mantle’s rookie season. For that one year, the paths of these two baseball icons converged, the naissance of Mantle’s career poignantly juxtaposed with the slow descent of DiMaggio’s final season. <I style="mso-bidi-font-style: normal">Strangers in the Bronx</I> is more than a chronicle of a pennant-winning team, it is also a study of heroes: the decline of an all-too mortal American icon and the emergence of the newest sensation in sport.<?xml:namespace prefix = "o" ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
