"Delightful and insightful." —John Thorn, author of Total Baseball

Baseball is the only sport where the defense has the ball, and there is no lonelier in the world of sports than the pitcher’s mound. Which makes Yankee relievers among the most scrutinized and intriguing group of athletes in the game. In Bullpen Diaries, Charley Rosen, lifelong Yankees fan and co-author of the bestseller More Than Just a Game, delivers a fun, insider’s look at this rare breed of player. With one-of-a-kind stories about Joe DiMaggio, Yogi Berra, Mariano Rivera and teammates, as well as behind-the-scenes interviews and fascinating trivia (including the origin of baseball’s secret mud), Rosen hits a grand slam with this indispensible volume of baseball history—featuring players and teams from across the MLB as well as predictions for 2011.

Two days before the ceremony, Budweiser honored the retired shortstop in a fitting tribute, "This Bud's For 2." The video, created by Budweiser and produced by VaynerMedia, begins with highlights from Jeter's final game in the Bronx, then shows various twos being removed around New York: a lighted 2 outside an entrance to the subway, a neon 2 in the window of a 24-hour establishment, a chalk-drawn

I read that Tris played very shallow and still could go back on the ball. Later that Sunday, I caught a ride with Lefty … I told him that I would be the greatest center fielder who ever played the game. I said
