PMA ANNOUNCES SALE OF 
FIVE O’CLOCK LIGHTNING: THE LIFE AND TIMES OF THE 1927 NEW YORK YANKEES

Peter Miller of PMA Literary & Film Management, Inc. is pleased to announce the sale of a book tentatively titled FIVE O’CLOCK LIGHTNING: THE LIFE AND TIMES OF THE 1927 NEW YORK YANKEES by Harvey Frommer to Stephen Power, Senior Editor at John Wiley and Sons in a nice deal.

The book will cover the entire 1927 season beginning in the winter of 1926 as players and management personnel engage in the “off-season.” Spring training in 1927 and the ebb and flow of the entire season will be recounted in telling detail climaxing with the sweep of the Pirates by the Yankees in the World Series.        

Those 1927 Yankees featured stars of stars like Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Bob Meusel,  Earle Combs, Tony Lazzeri, Waite Hoyt, Herb Pennock, manager Miller Huggins and owner Jake Ruppert. The on- the-field and off-the-field exploits of these and other members of the team will be given up-close treatment. The interplay of the team and the City of New York in that “Jazz Age” year will be a special, colorful element of the project as will selected examples of “oral history.”       

Harvey Frommer is the author of 34 sports books, including four with a direct focus on the Yankees: "New York City Baseball," "The New York Yankee Encyclopedia," "A Yankee Century,” ”Red Sox Vs. Yankees: The Great Rivalry”  He wrote for the Yankees for almost two decades. The prolific Frommer will be the Keynote Speaker at the SABR (Society for American Baseball, Research) conference in Cleveland next month and will be teaching “The Culture of Baseball” at Dartmouth College in the fall.
