Winning With The Yankees

2789. WINNING WITH THE YANKEES (C. 1956-USA) COLOR. Narrated by MEL ALLEN. What makes a Yankee tick? How do you get to be a New York Yankee? What’s it like to be a Yankee? These are just some of the questions posed in a fascinating look at the American League powerhouse. Produced by Coca-Cola, the film manages to show someone drinking or handling a Coke every few minutes. Starting off with Little League and American Legion baseball, the action moves to Spring Training where hopeful Major Leaguers are put through their paces. Using historical as well as “current” footage, the film shows Yankee greats like BABE RUTH, JOE DIMAGGIO, TY COBB, CY YOUNG, MICKEY MANTLE, PHIL RIZZUTO, YOGI BERRA, TED WILLIAMS (what’s he doing in here?) and even CASEY STENGEL. The narration by Mel Allen, known as “the voice the Yankees,” is a special treat. How ’bout that! 32 minutes. Documentary
