KIRKUS REVIEW

Another Grand Old Man reminisces, as one of the builders of the Yankees tells his story. Not only has Mr. Barrow been a minor league manager, club owner, league president, manager in the big leagues, but was for a time president of the Yankees until the sale of the club to Larry McPhail, whom the Man Behind the Yankees regards as somewhat too cocky. Of course there are stories about the greats -- Honus Wagner, Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, and the great Yankees, and trades, personalities and big moments. Also Mr. Barrow, who regrets that the day of ""nylon lines and bathing suit models"" in Yankee Stadium has arrived, nostalgically picks his all-time, all-star team. For fans-Yankees especially.
