In Game of My Life New York Yankees, everyone from stars to supersubs offers personal stories revealing the obstacles they had to overcome in order to succeed on sports’ biggest stage. Some of the biggest names to ever don the pinstripes are captured in personal portraits here, from Derek Jeter and Mariano Rivera to Don Mattingly, Reggie Jackson, Ron Guidry, and all the way back to Yogi Berra and Tommy Henrich. Along with taking readers behind the scenes of the greatest moments in Yankees history—from Bucky Dent’s home run to David Wells’s perfect game—the book offers a glimpse of what helped the stars reach their peak. Jorge Posada made up for the dream his father lost as a political prisoner in Cuba. Ron Guidry hunted from the time he was a boy to help his hard-working father put food on the table. Award-winning writer Dave Buscema, who covers the Yankees on a regular basis, paints a personal picture of the Yankees’ biggest stars, and captures the joy of those who rose from obscurity to history. The game accounts spark memories of the most exciting moments in Yankees history. The players’ personal stories show that, for many of them, the game of their life was often about more than just a game.
