New York City Baseball: 1947-1957 the Golden Age. By Harvey Frommer, Contributor. October 6, 2013 Updated: October 7, 2013. Baseball in October in New York City seemed like it would never come to an end. That is why this October of 2013 it seems strange that the New York Yankees and the New York Mets are finished with baseball, not able to make the play-offs. And the old cry of the old Brooklyn Dodger fan Wait ‘til next year seems appropriate. Also appropriate for me is the re-issue of my New York City Baseball 1947– 1957.

New York City Baseball tells about how the Dodgers, Giants and Yankees dominated the late 40's and early 50's baseball.
I really enjoyed the opening chapters discussing the reasons for the departure of the Giants and Dodgers to the west coast.
It made me feel really in on the move.
The rest of the books talks about the feuds, history and outcomes of the seasons metioned.
Frommer is a gifted writer and it was a pity that the book had to end.
There are some neat photos and I would reccommend this book right up there with Dynasty (about the Yankees).
Mr.Champions
Don't hesitate to buy this marvelous book. It told with an exact and actually atmosphere everything about NYC baseball... when the Giants were called 'Polo Grounders' and the Dodgers 'Da Bums'. The dramatic move also is well explained.

great transaction - fun summer read

This book brought back great memories when New York had three great baseball teams.
Dodger and Giant fans could not agree on much but they did hate the Yankees.
Who was better, Duke, Willie or Mickey was the subject of many a playground "discussion."

A. Willie.

" A good history of the time and the particulars. It was a helluva l0 years we had for ourselves. It's good to find New York City Baseball to re-create a happier era.
Vudozilkree
A well-written, tight and amusing chronicle. A fine special study of an era and a phenomenon."
Zyniam
It's more than names and stats. It's memories, moods. You have to read it."

Relive the golden days of the 1950s in this amazing account. And loaded with photos and stats that fans love. Here's to you, Jackie Robinson and Joe DiMaggio.
