Description

In Ten Rings, Yogi Berra tells the stories behind each of his remarkable ten championship seasons, spanning 1947 through 1962. A time when players played for the love of the game and worked as salesmen and pipe-fitters in the off-season to put food on the table, a time when dynasties were born and baseball became the national pastime.



Each season brought its own drama. In 1947, Yogi the rookie struggled behind the plate, and his unlikely physique -- knock-kneed and barrel-shaped -- earned him the nickname "The Ape." But the name calling didn't faze Yogi. After all, he said, he didn't have to hit with his face. And he had the last laugh. In 1949, Bill Dickey came out of retirement to, as Yogi said, "learn me his experiences" and mold him into the Hall of Fame catcher he would become. Then came a string of five consecutive Yankees World Series victories, which no other team in history has ever matched. The year 1951 was Joe DiMaggio's final season...and Mickey Mantle's first. In 1956 was Don Larsen's perfect game in the World Series. And much more.
