BrooklynFans Of Books: Yankees Bound For Glory With “The Baby Bombers”

The Baby Bombers: The Inside Story of the Next Yankees Dynasty

By Bryan Hoch

Diversion Books

The New York Yankees dynasty in the 1990s, which saw them win four World Series championships, revolved around homegrown players Derek Jeter, Andy Pettitte, Jorge Posada, and Mariano Rivera.

The last championship for The Core Four, as they came to be known, came in 2009, and the feeling of that era lasted until Jeter retired at the end of the 2014 season.

In The Baby Bombers, Bryan Hoch, who has covered the Yankees as a beat writer since 2007, chronicles how the team rebuilt over the past few years, and came within one win of reaching the World Series last season.

With Rookie of the Year Aaron Judge, Gary Sanchez, Luis Severino, and Greg Bird, the Yankees have a homegrown core of talent again.
