A Legend in the Making: Paperback: Ivan R Dee, Inc: 9781566635523: 16 Dec 2003: The story of perhaps the greatest team in baseball history, narrated against a background of one of the game's most remarkable seasons?an original work of history based on considerable research. Mr. Tofel presents a good many usually overlooked findings and sets the sport in its social and historical context. The best book about a single baseball team in a single year I have ever read. Donald Honig. Mr. Tofel's re-creation of the 1939 Yankee season makes a strong claim that the Yankees that year may have been the greatest team in baseball history. With Babe Ruth having retired but Lou Gehrig still in his prime, the Yankees in 1939 won their fourth consecutive World Series - and forever established the Yankee legend. The season itself was remarkable. Mr. Tofel's original work of history anchors the game in the context of American life at the end of a decade of troubles. He notices the fine points: how a fan could get a ticket for a World Series game just by walking up to the box office in October, and how that game would be played in the daytime. And his narrative includes a good many findings that are usually overlooked - for example, that players in 1939 were actually very well paid; that as Gehrig's health deteriorated, manager Joe McCarthy pressed him to end his consecutive game streak; that baseball segregation in 1939 was not so much a Jim Crow system but simply out of mind in an atmosphere of casual bigotry; that Joe McCarthy was probably the greatest manager in baseball history; and why. A Legend in the Making captures the small moments of the 1939 season as well as the great plays and great triumphs. Baseball fans will find it one of the most interesting and revealing baseball books of our time. Baseball, , , , A Legend in the Making, Richard J. Tofel, 9781566635523, Ivan R Dee, Inc, , , , ,

The best book about a single baseball team in a single year I have ever read.-Donald Honig. Here is the story of perhaps the greatest team in baseball history and of one of the game''s most remarkable seasons. With Babe Ruth having retired but Lou Gehrig still in his prime, the Yankees in 1939 won their fourth consecutive World Series-and forever established the Yankee legend. The dramatic story of the 1939 season is one of turning points: Gehrig takes himself out of the lineup and is soon found to be terribly ill; Joe DiMaggio, the rising star and replacement for Ruth, has perhaps his greatest year; baseball opens its Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York; the first major league baseball game is televised, and Yankee games are broadcast over the radio for the first time; night baseball comes to the American League. Richard Tofel has written an original work of history, based on considerable research. His compelling narrative includes a good many usually overlooked findings-for example, that players in 1939 were actually very well paid; that Manager Joe McCarthy pressed Gehrig to end his consecutive game streak as his health deteriorated; that baseball segregation in 1939 was not so much a Jim Crow system but simply out of mind in an atmosphere of casual bigotry; that McCarthy was perhaps the greatest manager in baseball history, and why. But the strength of Mr. Tofel''s book lies in his serious treatment of the sport in its social and historical context. Baseball fans will find A Legend in the Making one of the finest baseball books of our time. With 12 black-and-white photographs. Richard J.
