Starting as a college student sorting Mickey Mantle's fan mail and rising to become the youngest director of public relations in baseball history, Marty Appel offers a unique behind-the-scenes memoir of life with the New York Yankees from 1968-1977.

With a new chapter bringing the story up-to-date, as well as changes and milestones in the game he loves, Marty Appel paints a hilarious and poignant portrait of the Yankees.
"[Appel's] love of baseball shines through here, and Yankee fans will lap up his humorous stories of Yankee greats and not-so-greats." —LIBRARY JOURNAL
