Description The New York Yankees, the most successful team in baseball history, rose to prominence through the power of its legendary players. The dynasty that spanned a century has become synonymous with "American Sports: and the heroes that ran the bases in the Bronx are true national icons. Their lives and their accomplishments - before, during and after baseball - served as inspiration not just for fans of the sport, but for the public-at-large, during often dark and difficult times.

This collection of in-depth video biographies brings these pinstripe pros to life, presenting their amazing performances on the field against the broad backdrop of the tumultuous 20th Century. Featuring candid reminiscences from a host of baseball stars and other notable public figures, Bronx Baseball Legends humanizes the larger than life figures who dominated the diamond's greatest dynasty.

Babe Ruth, An American Legend: George Herman Ruth, Jr. is regarded by many as the greatest ball-player of all time, setting pitching and batting records that still stand. In his day the best known American in the world, the "Sultan of Swat" still commands the awe of baseball lovers everywhere.

Lou Gehrig, The Iron Horse: Lou Gehrig's record of 2,130 consecutive games played between 1925 and 1939 stood unbroken for 56 years. His streak ended after he was sidelined by amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), now commonly known as Lou Gerhig's disease.

Joltin' Joe DiMaggio: One of the best all-around athletes in sports history, Joe DiMaggio was the only ball-player ever to be chosen for the All-Star game in every season he was in the majors. His later marriage to Marilyn Monroe brought him a second round of fame.
