PDF Sixty-One: PDF

by Tony Kubek

Tony Kubek was the starting shortstop for the New York Yankees from 1957 to 1965, and in Sixty-One: The Team, the Record, and the Men, he and Terry Pluto tell the story of that magical year, 1961, when Maris and Mantle competed to beat the Babe's home run record, Whitey Ford won 25 games, and the Yankees beat the Cincinnati Reds in the World Series.

The book really revolves around Maris, starting out with an in-depth look at his character and career and how the home run race affected him and Mantle. Then Kubek provides a more detailed description of the 1961 season, the pennant race with Detroit and the Series with the Reds, before finishing with brief accounts of the lives of his teammates after baseball.

It's unpretentiously written, with a nicely personal and direct tone. This is certainly good reading for any Yankee fan, but also for baseball fans interested in an insider's illuminating account of a historic year in baseball.
