This Day in Yankees History
No, this isn't a post about dates, this is a post about my progress on the book that is currently under construction.
I have gathered large amounts of data for my book so far and I may seem only half way done. I managed to gather a complete compilation of every single game score of the Yankees from 1904-2005 and have the transactions from 1989-2005. I have requested information from the National Baseball Hall of Fame and they sent me a list of links that I can check out and possibly gather some more information.
I also have numerous timelines that I have collected and many, many dates that I have found throughout my archives, books, and videos.
This book is going to be a complete, in-depth history of the Yankees from January 1, 1904-December 31, 2006. If this book is successful, then we may see yearly updates coming out.
I need your help! I have not come up with a title yet for this book and I don't want anything boring, for example "This Day in Yankees History". If you can offer me a title that seems appropiate, please, don't hesitate to leave a comment or shoot me an e-mail. I am open to suggestions and any possible information that you can provide.
If you idea is accepted and confirmed, I will put you in the bibliography. If your title idea is selected and used in the final publication, you not only will be in the bibliography, but will also receive a free autographed copy of my book.
I am even considering a special limited edition book with the Yankees jersey along with the interlocking NY logo as the cover. The jersey will be a genuine replica and will be numbered.
Also, what would you like to see in the book? I have a ton of ideas that will be entered, but maybe there is something that you would like to see.
You can e-mail me any suggestions and ideas using the link on the right sidebar. Please use the keyword BronxBloggers in the subject line.

Sorry to respond here, but no, haven't heard about the ban on US Bloggers. Please illuminate me. If you have links, awesome. If you just have info, please send along so I can do a search. Am dying to know about this.

My hubby and I love your site! We are huge Yankee fans. We went to see the Yanks vx Sox in early June but it was rained out...Can't wait to see them Knock the Sox out of the ballpark during the double header in Sept.
Good luck on our battle!
