The 1950s clashes between the Yankees and Dodgers put New York at the center of the baseball universe. But the history of Subway Series extends way beyond those classic October battles. No fewer than 14 times have the top AL and NL teams hailed from the Big Apple and the all-New York match-ups have resulted in some of the most dramatic World Series ever played.

Big Apple Baseball Wars is the ultimate resource for all things Subway Series. Included are box scores, game accounts, and highlights of every game of every Fall Classic between perennial October participants, the New York Yankees, and their crosstown rival New York Giants (6 times), Brooklyn Dodgers (7 times), and New York Mets (1 time).

Also included are more than 50 classic photos and dozens of features and sidebars to bring color and life to the players and drama. It’s all here—from the three consecutive Yankees-Giants clashes of the Ruth and McGraw era through the DiMaggio years, to Mantle, Jackie Robinson, Berra, Duke Snider and the incredible 1950’s, to Jeter and Clemens battling Piazza and Leiter in 2000.

The stats and stories are drawn from an incredible database of World Series information that provides not only detail and background for the Subway Series themselves, but also the broader context of the entire history of the World Series.

Big Apple Baseball Wars is part reference, part history. The information and stories about the teams, players, and managers goes beyond what any book about the World Series has ever attempted. The journey through New York's glorious championship baseball history is one that will stay with you long after you complete it.
