No former Amsterdam Rugmaker pitcher went on to win as many big league games as Lew Burdette did. Unfortunately, none of those 203 victories happened in a Yankee uniform.
I describe Burdette’s one season here in Amsterdam and how he got more than even with New York’s front office for trading him, in the new 2nd Edition of my book “A Year’s Worth of Amsterdam NY Birthdays” which will be available for sale on Saturday, December 10, 2016. If you’d like to receive a copy from the first printing, fill out this reservation form and someone will contact you. The book will also be on sale at Liberty Fresh Market (4867 NY Route 30, Amsterdam, NY 12010) beginning that same day!
