"The Bronx Zoom"

Most of us are trying to forget 2020. The pandemic sickened millions and upended everyday life, disrupting the rhythms many of us didn’t realize we were so dependent on. For many, that includes the sounds of a nightly baseball game.

Eventually, Major League Baseball did launch a shortened 60-game season, but the stadiums were empty, the teams were often playing far from home, and the interviews will limited to a webcam.

MLB.com Yankees beat writer Bryan Hoch looks back on 2020 in his new book “The Bronx Zoom: Inside the New York Yankees’ Most Bizarre Season."
