Wouldn't it be great to understand all our Christmas traditions? Here, Jonathan Green offers the fascinating history behind our most beloved holiday traditions.

Yankee Doodles: Inside the Locker Room with Mickey, Yogi, Reggie, and Derek by Phil Pepe (Sports Publishing) 4.3 Stars (12 Reviews)    Price verified 13 hours ago

Phil Pepe spent years as the New York Daily News Yankee beat reporter, rubbing shoulders with countless Yankee greats, from Mickey Mantle and Yogi Berra to Derek Jeter and Mariano Rivera. While he was there to report on the action that occurred on the field, as well as the many disruptions occurring in the locker room—especially during the tumultuous seventies when Billy Martin and the “Boss" were constantly at one another's throats—that directly affected the team's performance on the field, Pepe also saw a world that never made the papers.

This simple story shows a side of Reggie Jackson—a Yankees superstar—that reminds us that these men are often nothing ...
