The Golden Age of Baseball, or Baseball's Golden Era, is the period from about 1920 to 1960

The Golden Age of Baseball, or Baseball's Golden Era, is the period from about 1920 to 1960. The golden era is the time period immediately following the dead-ball era (before World War I) but prior to what is now called the modern era. There is no exact timeframe in any of these eras. MLB considers the post World War II era to be the beginning of the modern age, which places the golden era between the end of World War I and the end of World War II.

By RICHARD GOLDSTEIN and BRUCE WEBERFEB. From 1949, his first full season, until 1957, the period generally considered the golden age of New York baseball - the last time the city’s fans were divided into three camps, and when at least one New York team played in the World Series each October - Snider was a colossus, one of three roaming the center fields of New York. The others, of course, were Willie Mays of the New York Giants and Mickey Mantle of the Yankees, and the three became symbols of their teams, as the city’s fans argued over who was best: Willie, Mickey or the Duke?

Richard Bak, Yankees Baseball: The Golden Age (Arcadia, 2000)

I've gotten used to Arcadia books being a certain way: every new chapter begins with a couple of expository paragraphs, then we get to the pictures. None of that here; I guess Richard Bak had too many pictures and too little room in Yankees Baseball: The Golden Age for exposition. (All Arcadia books, at least those I've come across, are exactly 128 pages, so that's not an unreasonable assumption.) As a result, you've got cover-to-cover pictures and captions. I'm not a big baseball fan, so a lot of this was new to me; however, I'm relatively sure that Yankees fans will get the same thrill from the nostalgia that I got from discovery. I did, however, miss the exposition; a couple of lines about Murderers' Row and their place in contemporary sports history wouldn't have gone amiss now and then, you know? But the pictures are the thing, and they're quite nice. A handsome gift for the Yankees fan in your life. ***

Some of Red Sox Players went to the Yankees (Babe Ruth, Red Duffing, Sparky Lyle,Johnny Damon, Wade Boggs, Roger Clemens, other many players who traded by the Red Sox to the Yankees). Yankee catcher Elston Howard went to Red Sox for one year 1967 for help the red sox the pennant world series and it did not work out until 2004. I am an avid red sox fan since 1967 and I am an avid yankees fan since 1996 (when yankees and red sox are playing each other I can rooting the red sox but the yankees are playing against other team that I can root the yankees too.
