Trading, buying and selling players have always been key in building better baseball teams, and few things stir the interest and passion of fans so much as a blockbuster trade. This work exhaustively chronicles the Babe Ruth purchase as well as the more than 600 additional transactions made by the Yankees. The author sets both the players and the deal in historical perspective, explaining why the Yanks and the other club involved made the deal, what expectations the owners, general managers and managers of the respective teams had for their new players, and, for some, what the players involved thought about their old and new teams. This book corrects many errors in trade dates listed in encyclopedias and trade registers.
