The Yankee Way

Playing, Coaching, and My Life in Baseball

About the Book

For almost thirty years, Willie Randolph, the All-Star second baseman, World Series champion, and manager was a part of Yankee lore and mythology. In his long-awaited memoir, he shares stories from his life in pinstripes, opening up about the team that raised him and the city that molded him. With unparalleled perspective into three generations of team history, the former Yankees captain offers fresh, firsthand insight into some of the greatest players ever to play the game and the greatest teams ever to call the Bronx their home. From Don Mattingly to Bernie Williams, Goose Gossage to Mariano Rivera, and Billy Martin to Joe Torre, Randolph presents a view of baseball history from the inside, describing how teams became dynasties and managers became legends—all in the shadow of the man who brought them together, the Boss, George Steinbrenner.

A quintessential New Yorker, he shares memories of a rise that could only happen in the Big Apple—from the projects of East New York to the house that Ruth built, discussing his triumphs and struggles on and off the field along the way.
