"As a life-long Dodger fan, I found "My Life In Yankee Stadium" a great read. It is funny, heartwarming, and a great look at baseball from the guy selling refreshments. You will love this book!!" -Larry King
"EVERYTHING, and more, much more, about Zully the Zany, a ballpark vendor, actor, and lover, who worked alongside Ali, Pope John II, U2, not to mention the time he gave Dustin Hoffman a beer and got a Broadway audition.""Interesting...honest...extremely well-written....I don't think you need to be a Yankees fan or even a sports fan -- although it would be helpful - to enjoy the stories that he told. I didn't think a vendor's stories could take up so many pages or be so interesting, but that's what I think makes a good book -- when someone surprises me -- and he did. Great job!"
-Dave Kindred, author and legendary sportswriter
-Judge, 27th Annual Writer's Digest Self-Publishing Awards "If you think you know everything about the Yankees, this is the last frontier. Stewart J. Zully entertainingly unveils all that goes on behind the scenes, getting peanuts, popcorn and Cracker Jack to hungry Yankee Stadium customers. It's a profession as old as baseball, of which we knew little unless we worked there. Now, we know it all.
" -Marty Appel, New York Yankees public relations 1968-77, author of Pinstripe Empire, Munson, and Casey Stengel "A great read!"
-Ron Bloomberg, former Yankee and author
"My Life in Yankee Stadium
" is a collection of stories and anecdotes from a vendor who started working at Yankee Stadium in 1970. Beginning at the age of fifteen tossing peanuts at a New York Giants football game, Stewart J. Zully vended at more than 2500 events, including playoff and World Series games, no-hitters, a Muhammad Ali heavyweight fight, a visit from the Pope, and, of course, the legendary Red Sox-Yankee rivalry. Here is a personal look at a vendor's life straight from the basement of the stadium to his other life in show business. Ironically, a commercial he appeared in won an Emmy and triggered a long-lost romance with a former stadium employee, whom he hadn't seen in twenty-four years. She is now his wife.
"My Life in Yankee Stadium
" contains unusual encounters with James Gandolfini, Jack Nicholson, Mel Brooks, and many others, whether on a movie set or in the stands at the ballpark. The quirky vendors, the bizarre assortment of fans, and the character of New York City itself all come alive as Zully gives the unique perspective that only an insider has. Filled with exclusive photos, "My Life in Yankee Stadium
" is a look at New York from the sixties to the present day, taking readers behind the scenes at the most famous stadium in all of sports.
