The House That Ruth Built

by Greg H

Most baseball fans run hot or cold on the subject of the New York Yankees.They either love the Yankee pedigree and the history inherent in those classy pinstripe uniforms or they hate the Yankee swagger and the dominance created by virtually unlimited resources. It can be easy to forget that there was a time when the Yankees had no more World Championships to their name than the Houston Astros. Robert Weintraub’s new book, The House That Ruth Built, takes a look back to the 1923 season when the Yankees were moving into a new stadium and had yet to win their first championship.  Better yet, Mr. Weintraub will be appearing at the Decatur library on the evening of April 18 to talk about his book and sign copies. It will be an evening any baseball fan can enjoy.
