The House That Ruth Built
A New Stadium, the First Yankee Championship, and the Redemption of 1923
Weintraub recreates the pivotal year that transformed the New York Yankees into the legendary franchise of today. Overshadowed by the New York Giants, the hapless Yankees played their home games at the ballpark of their cross-town rivals. But when Yankee Stadium was completed in 1923, Babe Ruth bounced back from a disappointing season--launching the Yankees' storied history and immortalizing the stadium as the "House That Ruth Built."
