Phil “The Scooter” Rizzuto, the Hall-of-Fame Yankee shortstop, was the team’s national TV announcer for thirty-five years. He now tells the story of his five most exciting seasons, 1949-1953, when he and eleven teammates achieved the impossible dream.

The Yankees won five consecutive World Championships, the longest winning streak in history. The twelve who played on all five teams–Allie Reynolds, Vic Raschi, Eddie Lopat, Yogi Berra, Charlie Silvera, Bobby Brown, Jerry Coleman, Johnny Mize, Joe Collins, Gene Woodling, Hank Bauer, and, of course, Phil–are legends. The October Twelve is their unforgettable story.
