Annotation A popular history of New York City's wildly popular (if second in other ways to the Yankees) baseball team. Golenbock chronicles its less than auspicious beginnings in the early 1960s--when the fumbling team was last in the league--through the end of the decade when they won the World Series, and beyond. Through steady fan support, a winning team was assembled, with great names like Tom Seaver, Keith Hernandez, and more.
