Y Giants series to be published as a book

NORWICH – Back by popular demand, a printed series chronicling the brief history of the Norwich Y Giants is being turned into a book, series author Jim Dunne has announced.



“Y Giants: A History of Norwich’s Semi-Pro Football Team,” which first appeared as a 15-part collection of stories in The Evening Sun in October, is scheduled to hit shelves in a glossy, soft-cover book form in early March.

“We decided to do this because there have been some requests to have the story appear in book form,” Dunne said.

The Y Giants existed for five seasons from 1947-1951. In all, there were 90 players, the earliest of whom were World War II veterans and the latter veterans of the Korean War.
