The stage was set for excitement in baseball throughout the 1920s when Babe Ruth was sold by the Boston Red Sox to the New York Yankees. With Ruth on board, the Yankees, under manager Miller Huggins, became America's most popular team, and forged a dynasty by winning three consecutive American League pennants from 1921 to 1923. In 1923, they won the World Series championship. One season later, their period of dominance ended when they finished second to the Washington Senators.

Favoured to win the pennant in 1925, the Yankees dynasty crumbled to the bottom of the league. During that season Ruth's love for the nightlife, his undisciplined nature and disrespect for his team and manager finally caught up to him, and jeopardised his future in baseball. This book tells the story of the Babe Ruth, Miller Huggins, and the Yankees' rise to glory, their fall in 1925, and their climb back to the top.
