Anyone who has a passionate disdain of the New York Yankees needs to own this spiral-bound resource that focuses on the litany of mistakes and misdeeds of baseball's most despised franchise.

Written by Gabriel Schechter, a researcher at the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, the hybrid book/calendar lists each day of the year and a few events accompanied by a quote that highlight the lowlights the Yankees have experienced on a daily basis.

With a policy of accentuating the negatives and eliminating the positives, the author provides ammunition for baseball fans to use against their Yankee counterparts one day at a time.

Featuring a foreword by former Red Sox pitcher and noted Yankee hater Bill Lee, This BAD Day in Yankees History is a celebration of everything bad that has happened to the boys from the Bronx both on and off the field.
