Details

The New York Yankees don't call themselves the "Bronx Bombers" for nothing. And though Babe Ruth did not invent the home run, he did indeed popularize it and make it seem less vulgar.
New York Yankees Home Run Almanac presents a month-by-month tally of historic, important, unusual, or titanic home runs, hit mostly by Yankees (or players who hit them at Yankees ballparks). It covers everyone from Ruth to Mickey Mantle, Alex Rodriguez, Joe DiMaggio, Lou Gehrig, Reggie Jackson, Derek Jeter, Aaron Judge, and many more pinstripe players, past and present, in an easy-to-read format. Some of the many dingers featured include:

  • Graig Nettles's home run on Opening Day 1974, when the Yankees called Shea Stadium home
  • Jorge Posada's and Bernie Williams's switch-hit home runs during the same game in 2000
  • Pitcher Whitey Ford's third and final home run of his career
  • Aaron Judge's 50th home run of the season, a rookie record
  • And many more!
